KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 30 (Bernama) — Kuala Lumpur (KL) City FC head coach Bojan Hodak has described his team’s Malaysia Cup final against Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) tonight as the most challenging task ever in his career in the Malaysia League (M-League)
The Croatian said this was because his KL City team only had the services of two national players – D. Kenny Pallraj, Muhammad Akram Mahinan – unlike when he guided Kelantan to the title in 2012 and took JDT to the final in the 2014 edition.
However, Hodak, 50, said the spirit of togetherness among the KL City players was among the key to their impressive unbeaten run in the Malaysia Cup competition, which culminated with them being crowned champions after defeating JDT 2-0 at the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil tonight.
“Literally, we have only two national players but this is a hardworking team and, of all the teams I’ve coached in my career, we (KL City FC) have a fantastic atmosphere in the dressing room.
“I didn’t have this at any (of the other) clubs before. When you have this kind of atmosphere, you know you can do something,” he said at the post-match press conference.
