V. Sundramoorthy signs contract extension with FAS

Singapore national team head coach V. Sundramoorthy has signed a two-year contract extension to lead the Lions, according to an announcement made by Football Association of Singapore (FAS) on Monday.

The new contract for the former international player comes just two weeks ahead of the Lion’s AFC Asian Cup qualifier against Bahrain, which is scheduled to play on March 28.

V. Sundramoorthy was appointed last May on a one-year caretaker deal as a replacement for the German coach Bernd Stange. He was tasked with guiding Singapore to the semi-finals of last December’s AFF Suzuki Cup.

Although the Lions crashed out of the tournament in the group stage, the 51-year-old manager is safe, and FAS has decided to give him a chance to redeem himself and expected him to guide Singapore to the Asian Cup’s group stage.
