FAS’ reply to media queries on LionsXII head coach V Sundramoorthy’s contract with the FAS
“We have always maintained that we would like to renew Coach V. Sundramoorthy’s contract which would expire in late December 2013, and we had earlier offered him a competitive and attractive package aimed at renewing his contract.
Coach Sundram had earlier informed us that he will let us know of his decision by the end of September. However, he has since requested for another week to consider the offer.
Coach Sundram is one the key members of our technical team which has been tasked to prepare the Under-23 team for the year-end SEA Games competition since January this year. As National Teams Head Coach, Bernd Stange has also been working closely with the SEA Games 2013 technical team, including Sundram, since his appointment in mid-May.
We are pleased with the progress of our Under-23 players over the past nine months and the technical team will continue to optimise our preparations for the biennial competition.”
