What they say
It's a clear additional value that Fandi's on board. He brings a lot of knowledge to our group - him, (national youth teams head coach) Richard Tardy and myself. We have had many discussions. Of course, we don't agree on everything, but every discussion I have had with Fandi is interesting. He knows a lot about the different levels of Singapore football, and I don't know anyone else who can do this.
- FAS technical director Michel Sablon
He's an important staff for us. He's well respected, and his presence will be good news for us ahead of the Suzuki Cup (next month). I'm very happy he'll be here for the long term. If anybody deserves something (like this), it's him because of his contributions to Singapore football.
- National coach V Sundramoorthy
Now it's about the FAS backing Fandi and his plans and also making sure the system is right, because youth football is still a problem. While it's great Sundram is the national coach and Fandi is now (head coach (youth), they can only play with the cards they are dealt with.
