Richard Bok: Not our fault if rivals do not catch up

The Warriors’ large-scale renewal exercise, which has saw them signed 3 top quality foreigners, with an emphasis on strengthening their position on the continent, has led to fears among neutrals that the 2010 edition of the S.League could turn into a one-horse race.

But while Bok saw no reason to apologize for his team’s hunger for continued success, he was keen to note that teams like Home United, Tampines Rovers and even fast-improving Gombak United will also strengthen themselves and rise to his side’s challenge.

“At SAFFC, we are professional, and we want to build teams that can win titles,” he said matter-of-factly.

“That has nothing to do with whatever we have done before, or what others want to do. For us, every competition we go into, we will try to win it.

“We always want to do better than what we are doing now. But it’s not only us; if you’ve been reading the news, Balestier (Khalsa) have said they are improving their team, and every other team is also going to be improved.

“Home has signed some new players, Gombak are keeping most of their existing players in what is still a relatively young team, and Tampines is still tough as well. I think that’s the way, and it is going to be another very competitive year for the league.”
