SHAH ALAM, April 18 -- The FAM-MSN Project Squad has identified three players who have shown significant improvement in their playing skills, and are on a par with other Premier League players.
However, FAM-MSN Project Squad head coach Yusri Che Lah declined to reveal who the players were because he was worried that the players might not focus because they thought that they had succeeded.
“Let this be between the players and me, and I hope that these players continue to improve, and that other players will follow similar improvements,” he said at a press conference after the match against Kelantan United FC last night.
Despite identifying the three players, he said that the FAM-MSN Project Squad still needed other players to participate in continuing the Premier League, which still has 11 matches left.
“It takes time for other players to prove their mettle. Maybe in the near future, or in three to six months, or even a year,” he said.
Yusri also refuted claims that his team could be lacking in tactical and mental aspects, and opined that players need to think out of the box on how to face the rest of the matches against opponents who will continue to exert pressure from start to finish.
He was also impressed by the commitment showed by his players, aged between 17 and 20, who played during Ramadan for the first time.
Last night's match at the UiTM Stadium in Shah Alam saw the FAM-MSN Project squad lose 0-3 to Kelantan United FC.
