Batigol + Fandi Ahmad = Glory !
I was so amazed with recent development happened with JOHOR FA since Johor's crown prince,Tunku Ismail overtook the helm as presidency seat barely few weeks ago. Since then, he has signed Singapore's legendary striker and FC Groningen Hall of Fame, Fandi Ahmad as newly Technical Adviser cum team manager on 3 years deal.
Yesterday the crown prince has revealed on his twitter that if all goes well, Argentine legend Gabriel Batistuta or his nickname Batigol could join the second tier Malaysia's Football League, JOHOR FA and work with Fandi Ahmad as Technical Adviser.
Despite all stunning development he has brought in short periods, the crown prince himself has made a realistic target for the team to be promoted to Malaysia Super League . I wonder what next to come under his guidance,perhaps bringing quality signings?
Johor FA are currently fifth in the 12-strong Malaysia Premier League standings with nine points after six matches, four points behind leaders Pahang, who beat them 2-0 last night in Temerloh. The MPL is Malaysia's second division, below the Super League.
