The suspense over the identity of the new national football coach will linger for another three months after the Football Association of Singapore (FAS) said on Thursday (March 7) that the recruitment search will drag on until June.

FAS general secretary Yazeen Buhari said “We are at the tail end of the process. And we should be appointing one (the new national coach) before the next competition window (official Fifa match dates) in June.”

The Lions have been without a coach since exiting the group stage of the AFF Suzuki Cup in December last year. Then, FAS’ head of youth Fandi Ahmad led the team for six months.
