Sathianathan No Longer Red Giants’ Head Coach

Published

on

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 21  — The Football Association of Selangor (FAS) today terminated the contract of B. Sathianathan as head coach after the Red Giants squad only recorded a single win since the Super League competition resumed in August.

The termination of the 62-year-old’s contract comes less than 48 hours after Selangor lost 1-6 to league leaders Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) at the Sultan Ibrahim Stadium, Iskandar Puteri, on Saturday.

This was confirmed by Sathianathan after a meeting this morning with the top leadership of FAS including its president Raja Muda Selangor Tengku Amir Shah Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah and deputy president Datuk Seri Shahril Mokhtar.

“I was fired. I was expecting this and had seen the signs. When you are fired, you have to accept,” he told Bernama.

Besides the drubbing by JDT, Selangor only managed one win and two draws since the resumption of the Super League after the competition was suspended for almost five months following the spread of COVID-19 in the country.

The latest results left the the 33-time Malaysia Cup champions in seventh place with just 10 points after a total of eight matches played, and are four points from the relegation zone.

Sathianathan, whose contract was until the end of the season, admitted that he was a little upset as he was unable to fulfil his duties until the season ended.

“The season is not over, we still have the Malaysia Cup after this, so anything can happen. I believe Selangor can win the remaining three Super League matches and end the league in second or third place.

“I hope Selangor achieve that goal with the new coach. I know the existing line-up of players is good enough for Selangor, ” he said.

Sathianathan, who is a former national coach, has served two seasons with Selangor after being appointed as the Red Giants head coach in November 2018.

Woman Shares 12-Month Trial of Spider Bite Turns Into A ‘Crater’

Published

on

Recently, a woman has shared the effects of a bite from a spider known as the ‘Brown Recluse Spider’ on social media. Injuries from the spider bite have caused the victim’s skin to have holes as a result of the infection.

The effects of the bite started from a red lump and then the woman’s skin had holes with black wounds, this condition occurred after a few weeks of being bitten by the spider.

The scars from the spider bite are still visible even after a year after the bite.

The woman also uploaded a picture of the ‘Brown Recluse Spider’. A friend of the victim shared the story on Reddit.

“He saw a doctor within 45 minutes after being bitten”.

“14 days of antibiotics, three times a day. Daily treatment for the first two weeks and once a week since”.

“The spider that bit him was caught and put in a plastic zip to be shown to the doctor”.

It takes 12 months of medical treatment to treat a bite because the soft tissue damage caused by Brown Recluse spiders can take months to heal. Brown Recluse spiders are usually not known as aggressive. Although bites rarely cause death, they can cause significant “soft tissue destruction” that takes months to heal.

This species is usually found only in South and Central America and usually grows to a length of between 6 and 20 mm (0.2 and 0.8 inches) – but they can grow larger. These spiders are also said to be the second most venomous spider in America.
