Fans telling Sabah Football Association that they know what’s brewing inside #justice4Andre

All is not well within the Sabah FA even though the team is leading the Malaysa Premier League after 5 games. It was bungle one after another for the SAFA Committee an also by CEO (and newcomer to the football scene) Datuk TC Goh.

Earlier in the season they didn’t do their homework when they signed an underqualified player based on Football of Malaysia’s regulations and then having their coach leaving the team just weeks before the season started.

Sabah were made to sweat by DRB Hicom as the Rhinos had to come back twice before getting all the three points in their home game opener in Likas yesterday.

Much to the shock of the home fans, the visitors opened the scoring as early as the second minute through a headed goal by Ivan Babic off from a free kick just outside the penalty box.

However Sabah skipper and crowd-favourite El Hadji Diouf equalized just four minutes later following  a melee in front of the visitors goal. Just as the crowd finished celebrating the equalizer the visitors went in front again thanks to an own-goal by import Abdoulaye Faye who sliced the cross into his own net.

“Absolutely No Pressure” – Diouf [Photo credit Pahlawan Kung]

After much anticipation and pre-season excitement, fueled by the capture of Senegalese international El Hadji Diouf, the football fans around the country will be fixed upon the Sabah Rhinos team as they continue their struggle to get back to the Super League this year.

Also in the team is compatriot defender Abdoulaye Faye, who has signed a one-year contract with the Rhinos.

Ahead of the team’s opening game this evening against Kuala Lumper, Sabah Minister of Youth and Sports Datuk Tawfiq Abu Bakar Titingan has urged the team to start the season with a win.

Touching on the number of fans who come to the stadium, he has this to say “Buli dibilang dengan jari kita” (we can count using our fingers). He says that if the earlier the team starts winning, the more the fans will come.

For Diouf, he can’t wait to play his first league game and show his mettle after arriving in Sabah last November and says that he feels “absolutely no pressure” at all, having played in the world-famous English Premier League with Liverpool, Blackburn and Bolton.

With local coach Justin Ganai in the hot seat after the shocking departure of George O’Callaghan, this could be the year Sabah climbs back to the top league and play with the big boys.

For the fans, it’s time to enjoy another roller coaster season with the team!

All the best Rhinos!

Sabah crash to home defeat

Kota Kinabalu: Sabah’s hopes of a winning start in its home match was spoilt by KL Felda United on Monday night when they were soundly beaten 1-3 in the Premier League tie at the Likas Stadium in front of Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman and about 6,000 fans.
The bold move by coach Milomir Seslija to start the match with youngster Maxsius Musa and Sabri Sahar seemed to pay off as Farid Ideris had the first look at goal in the sixth minute after being put through by Rozaimi Abd Rahman but his shot was too weak and was easily saved by Felda’s keeper Mohd Farizal Harun.

KOTA KINABALU: Seslija Milomir has been named as the new Sabah head coach.

The Bosnian will be officially unveiled anytime now.

In fact, the former Sabah midfield maestro is already in the national capital, and was among those who turned up for Sabah’s Malaysia Cup playoff against Negeri Sembilan at the Shah Alam Stadium last night.

Yesterday, Sabah Football Association (SFA) Deputy President Datuk Lawrence Gimbang confirmed that Milomir, who donned Sabah colours from early 1994 to 1997, will be their new head coach succeeding David McCreery, who resigned due to health reasons, last month.
