Pengiran Bala has been announced as the new head coach for Sarawak FA, quashing rumours that the hot seat would go to Jalil Rambi or Raja Isa.
The announcement was confirmed by the Football Association of Sarawak (FAS) today reported Utusan Borneo.
According to the daily, Pengiran Bala would be assisted by Safri Amit and Mohamad Denny Da’ail.
Legendary Awang Mahyan Awang Mohamed was also announced as the advisor to the team with Datuk Ed Sullaiman Ahmad made the team manager.
The appointment of Bala makes it his third stint as the head coach of Sarawak FA.
The former Sarawak FA player took over as care-taker of the team during mid-2017 season, and was also asked to step in as head coach in 2015.
Personally we love Bala’s tactical ability, but he does have his work cut out for the 2019 season as the new head coach.
