: The FA of Selangor (FAS) have signed former star player Mehmet Durakovic as head coach of the Super League squad for next season.
A source in FAS said that the 48-year-old former Australian player had signed the deal a couple of days ago and would begin work on Nov 15.
Mehmet is no stranger to Malaysian football having led the Red Giants to win the Malaysia Cup for three consecutive seasons from 1995-97.
Selangor are desperate for success in the domestic competition after three fruitless seasons. Former Selangor coach Irfan Bakti had left the state team mid-way through the Malaysia Cup this season.
Irfan had reportedly signed up for Felda United next season.
