Sundramoorthy leaves Negeri Sembilan after one season
Former LionsXII coach V. Sundramoorthy will not be coaching Malaysian Premier League side Negeri Sembilan next season and is reportedly attracting interest from S.League clubs Tampines Rovers and Brunei DPMM FC.
As reported by The Newpaper in Singapore, Sundram who guided the LionsXII to the Malaysian Super League title in 2013 before leaving to take the reigns as head coach of Negeri Sembilan, has been relieved of his duties and is in discussion with the Seremban-based club over his compensation package.
Sundram's team finished sixth in Malaysia's second tier and did not qualify for a spot in the Malaysia Cup. That was despite the Singaporean legend bringing in quality players like Josef Kaplan and Jean Effa Owona.
It was also reported that S.League clubs Tampines Rovers and Brunei DPMM FC are keen on Sundram's services. But nothing can be firmed up until his Negeri compensation package is decided.
K. Devan, the man who last brought the MSL title to Negeri Sembilan, has been named as Negeri head coach for the 2015 season.
The 49-year-old Sundram, nicknamed The Dazzler because of his playing skills, won the 1990 Malaysia Cup as a player with Kedah FA. He also was the second Singaporean to play in Europe when he signed with Swiss club FC Basel in 1988.
