The Malaysia Futsal manager, Chiew Chun Yong, has admitted that the team is still not ready for the AFF Futsal Championship.
According to Yong, the players have not adapted to the new system and needs time to boost their performances.
“But I understand that players need time and more matches to get used to the system. So I hope they are more focused and will work hard to adjust their playing style once the tournament kicks off,” Yong told Sinar Harian.
Malaysia will head to Bangkok for their next set of friendly matches where they will first play Bangkok FC first.
Malaysia played six friendlies previously where they won five and draw one.
The AFF Futsal Championship will kick off on 23 January in Thailand.
The tournament was supposed to be held from 31 October to 6 November 2016, but was postponed due to the death of King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
Malaysia will kick off their campaign against Indonesia in Group B.
