Terengganu’s newly appointed head coach Mike Mulvey has vowed to have his men play entertaining football for the rest of the Malaysian football calendar.
The Turtles have impressed under the tutelage of Mulvey, particularly in their comprehensive 3-1 win over Selangor earlier this month, where Issey Nakajima played a starring role with two-goals.
That performance turned out to be the deciding factor in Terengganu’s decision to hand him the role permanently and Mulvey is already determined to repay their faith.
“It is important that we have finalised negotiations and reached an agreement. Stability is vital in any organisation, especially at a football club,” he said, according to a statement that was released on Terengganu’s Facebook page.
“I have belief in this project and look forward to continue working hard with players and staff in improving the quality in our football. I am happy with life in Terengganu with the friendly people irrespective of whether they are football fans or not.
“Terengganu certainly have very enthusiastic fans and it would be an honour to bring them entertaining football,” he added.
The Turtles had a poor start to the season under Ahmad Yusof, which led to the PBSNT’s decision of ‘resting’ him. Mulvey, who was initially the Technical Director, was handed the head coach role temporarily, while PBSNT hunted for a permanent replacement.
But a mini revival occured under the guidance of Mulvey, and fans eventually got on his back, calling for the ex-Brisbane Roar boss to be handed the role on a permanent basis.
