Dollah Salleh to quit national team post?

Dollah Salleh has reportedly told FAM of his desire to resign as the head coach of the Malaysian national football team.

This came after a disastrous 10-0 defeat against UAE last night, which caused plenty of uproar within the Malaysian football fraternity, particularly on social media.

UAE were up by seven goals in the first half itself, eventually ending the match with a 10-nil score line, a result which will go down as the worst defeat in Malaysian football history.

During the post-match press conference last night, Dollah was asked as to whether he will be stepping down, to which he answered, “I don’t know. We will see in these upcoming few days.”

While there hasn’t been any official confirmation on the decision, FAM will reportedly clarify the matter later today, with rumours suggesting that Datuk Ong Kim Swee is set to be appointed as the interim head coach.

As usual, fans took upon Twitter to express their grief and anger towards one of the embarrassing moments in Malaysian football history.

Some of them also felt that the blame should not on Dollah entirely, as the players had their part in the defeat as well.
