Tan Cheng Hoe ready for possibility of interim head coach role

Tan Cheng Hoe is ready to step up to be the new head coach of the Harimau Malaya squad.

The Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) have been looking to fill in the position of national team head coach and the ex-Kedah boss will do anything for the betterment of his country.

The national team are running out of time to prepare for the 2019 Asian Cup qualifiers as their first game of the group stages will be against North Korea in Pyongyang on June 8.

“I will let FAM and the president (Tunku Ismail) take matters into his own hands because we do not have much time until the first match,” Tan Cheng Hoe said as quoted by Harian Metro.

“I will follow instructions and do whatever it takes to make our national team succeed.

There have been rumours linking the vacant role with experienced Portuguese manager Ulisses Morais, who spent over 20 years coaching the likes of Maritimo, Beira-Mar and Aves.

“I do not know who FAM are looking at, but I will work with anyone,” he concluded.
