BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN (10 Feb 2012) – With an aim towards injecting more professionalism into Brunei football, several coaches in the sultanate have called for a specialised football seminar to be organised.
Former national coach Dayem Ali’s call for the hosting of the seminar received further boost this week with a number of coaches in the DST National League lending support.
“There is a real need to be a football seminar for the management of the local football clubs. At the same time, for coaches, a proper seminar that informs them about the effective football tactics for every local football club and team would be useful,” said Dayem.
“Why? Because when it comes to national football, the players will struggle without a system. Players today need to be technical, and highly knowledgeable in the tactical aspects of the game.”
LLRC FT head coach Affandi Julaihi reacted positively to the seminar’s proposal.
“That is a good idea. In fact, I have just finished a FIFA management course recently, and it has been highly informative. With that in mind, I support coach Dayem’s proposal,” added Affandi.
Rosirwan Abu Bakar, the coach of Sri Sentosa FC and Najip Mokhtal from Najip FC, also backed Dayem’s proposal.
The on-going DST National League will determine which football clubs qualify for the prestigious DST Super League, which is slated to begin in April.
