Woodlands Wellington head coach Salim Moin have declare that he was setting his squad a goal of finishing in the top three in the 12-team S.League.
kind of finish was achieved only three times in the club’s history,
the last occasion coming in 2005, yet Salim seemed confident as he
spoke of the upcoming season.
“As head coach of this
club, I am very pleased to say that this year will be a better year for
Woodlands,” noted the 51-year-old.
“We have signed
some very quality players for the team. If you see from the expressions
of my players, they are very excited, and we want to be in a better
position than last year.
“I’m a very bold and outspoken
person, and I think the players I have selected this time will finish
much better than last year, maybe somewhere in the top three. I have
confidence in the team, and the players have confidence in me.
we aim for anything less than the top three, our players might be lazy
and won’t work so hard. But I’m not going to put pressure on my team;
they know what they are looking at, and their minds are on playing
football, nothing else.”
The 2013 campaign marks
Salim’s second in charge of Woodlands, having moved to the club from
Balestier Khalsa at the start of 2012.
