Former Malaysia Cup winner with the Singapore team Abbas Saad will be assisting Geylang International head coach Mohd Noor Ali till November.
The Australian, who won the double with Singapore in 1994 is in Singapore for the Asian Football Confederation professional football diploma coaching course and his attachment with the Eagles is part of his course.
He told the Straits Times, “I’m grateful for the FAS opening the doors for me to do it, and Geylang are such a historic club ever since I got involved with Singapore football in the 1990s.
“I have been following Singapore football and I know the club went through a blip recently, but every team have their ups and downs, and I’m looking forward to assisting my good friend Noor Ali and helping the club succeed as best as we can.”
Geylang coach Noor Ali is also involved in the same course which Abbas is undergoing.
He told ST that “it will be an honour to work with a legend.”
“He has so much experience as a player and coach, it will motivate the players and a good learning process for me and (Geylang assistant) V. Kanan too.
“Abbas will be a good helping hand as we play the AFC Cup in June and try to get more points from the second round of the SPL. Hopefully, this new partnership can kick-start our season.”
