Kelantan sack George Boateng?

George Boateng’s tenure in charge of Kelantan could be coming to an end with speculations suggesting that he has been shown the exit door after their poor start to the season.

While there hasn’t been any official confirmation on the matter, Kelantan FA president, Tan Sri Annuar Musa is reportedly unhappy with their start to the Super League season, where they have lost two games thus far. The Red Warriors are currently 7th in the table with seven points from their first give games as well.

According to a source, what concerns Tan Sri Annuar more, is their apparent lack of firepower despite acquiring foreign players who were reputable in their previous teams for being able to consistently find the back of the net. But the Red Warriors have only scored 4 goals in the league this season, which certainly comes across as a poor return, considering their investment.

Instead of shifting the blame on these individuals, the Kelantan FA management believe that George’s tactics doesn’t seem to be working well with the team. He was also missing from the touchlines during their FA Cup win over Kuala Lumpur FA last night, heightening rumours on his immediate future.

The candidate that is reportedly being considered as his replacement is former Kedah and Negeri Sembilan head coach, Azraai Khor Abdullah. The 62 year-old is best known for his time with the Canaries, where he led them to a treble in 2007 and 2008, before being equally influential with Negeri Sembilan few years later.

Azraai recently departed for Brazil, where he was supposed to be enrolled into a coaching course to further improve his knowledge on the game, but according to a source, he has ended his stint in South America and is expected to be back in Malaysia by the 20th of March, before being briefed on details regarding the position.

That being said, there has been no official word from either parties involved in the matter.
