# International Joseph Kallang Tie returns to Terengganu
# Terengganu also rope in Amiridzwan Taj and Yong Kuong Yomg
# Ahmad Yusof named as chief coach
Sarawak football suffered a big blow when skipper Joseph Kallang Tie returned to his former team Terengganu for the 2016 season.
The newly married Kallang Tie was one of the three internationals signed by the Turtles. The other two who signed a one year contract in Kuala Terengganu on Wednesday were Amiridzwan Taj and Penang’s Yong Kuong Yong.
Kallang Tie is not new to Terengganu as he donned the East Coast colours from 2008 to 2012 before he returned to his homestate. Amridzwan quit Armed Forces in mid-season and returned to his homestate Kelantan.
Terengganu FA secretary Arpin Draman said the trio will certainly beef up the team for the new season.
He also announced that caretaker coach Ahmad Yusof, a former international, has been promoted as the new head coach.
The Turtles had a topsy-turvy season this year. After a bright start Terengganu could only finish fourth in the Super League and failed to make the Malaysia Cup quarter-finals after losing to Lions XII 2-1 in their last group match played at home.
Meanwhile the Perak FA announced the appointment of former national coach Ken Worden as the FA’s Technical Director.
The widely traveled Worden is not new to the local football scene. He also had coaching stints with Sabah, Selangor and Singapore apart from coaching Melbourne Knights in the Australian League.
Former international Shamsul Saad has been appointed as the new chief coach of Perak.
