# Replaces Nenad Bacina as head coach

# JDT II to continue as feeder squad for JDT


Premier League outfit JDT II will have a new head coach for their campaign in the 2016 M-League – Mexican Benjamin Mora.

Mora replaces Nenad Bacina who failed to take the Johor outfit to the Malaysia Cup quarter-finals after finishing fifth in the second-tier Premier League.

In a posting on the Southern Tigers Facebook the statement said JDT II will continue to play a major role in Johor FA’s development programmes by exposing young talent in the M-League.

The posting also revealed that there will be some major changes in the JDT II squad next season with only a handful of seniors keeping their place to guide the young talent that will be taken in.

Mora will be assisted by coaches from German football giants Borussia Dortmund with whom the Johor FA have a strategic partnership with the aim of unearthing and developing talented footballers in Johor.

The Mexican is said to have vast coaching experience and has coached clubs like Cafetaleros, Guerreros, Gallos Biancos and Atlante in Mexico.
