S’poreans only care that Fandi is LionsXII coach

Posted on 08 December 2013

They don’t really care even if the team finishes last in Malaysian Super League.


Singaporeans from all walks of life with varying levels of athletic ability are rejoicing.

This after Fandi Ahmad has been named the new coach of the LionsXII.

A local sports fan, Kwa Tak Kiew, said appointing Fandi as coach is as right as putting “Scarlett Johansson” and “naked” together in the same sentence: “To know that Fandi is the coach is all that Singaporeans need to know. He can not win anything, or even finish last in the league, it will also be fine.”

Another football fan, Zhen Tian Zhen, said LionsXII winning any games in the Malaysian Super League next season is an additional blessing: “The point is that Singaporeans just want Fandi to be coach and they are happy to see him there forever. If Fandi cannot deliver, then so be it.”

“This is much better than putting a foreigner at the helm and wining trophies because Singaporeans wouldn’t even feel good about any victories acquired in this manner.”

“It is better to do worse with a local than do well with foreigners.”
