The Lion City Sailors were “rubbish” said its head coach Aurelio Vidmar after a 4-0 loss to Tampines Rovers in yet another Singapore Premier League match played behind closed doors at the Our Tampines Hub.
In quotes carried by the Straits Times, the Aussie said, “We were not even on the field for the second half.
“What was most disappointing was the lack of fight, which was unacceptable.
“I am not sure why that happened. We have to go back and reflect.”
The Stags rout of the Lion City Sailors came courtesy of goals from Boris Kopitovic, Zehrudin Mehmedovic, Jordan Webb and Shah Shahiran.
The loss to the table-topping Stags meant that the Sailors, seen as potential runaway champions pre-season, have still yet to register their first win of the season.
The drew 1-1 with Tanjong Pagar in their opening tie.
