[Today] Here’s to more wins for Fandi and company

Hearty congratulations should go out to the LionsXII for winning the Malaysia FA Cup, as well as to their coach, our hard-working Fandi Ahmad (“More than 2,000 welcome Malaysia FA Cup champs LionsXII”; May 24, online).
Those who remember him playing for Singapore in the good old days would know how he feels, and what it is like to win an important tournament in Malaysia.
The LionsXII do not have the benefit of employing foreign players as the Malaysian teams do, so local talent is important for us. And by the looks of it, we do seem to have players of a high calibre.
I hope Fandi continues to help nurture our young talent and lead them to more successes in time to come.
