Malaysia coach Nelo Vingada worried of not having enough time to prepare for AFC Asian Cup qualifiers

Malaysia coach Nelo Vingada is worried that his side did not have enough time to prepare for the Asian Cup qualifiers against North Korea starting this week.

With 14 players involved in Saturday’s Malaysia Cup final between Johor Darul Ta’zim and Kedah, Vingada can only finalize his 23-man squad today, that leaves just two days of training before the first legged qualifier on 10 November.

“It was an intense final but of course the JDT players are also celebrating and they and the Kedah players will join us tomorrow,” said Vingada, as quoted by the New Straits Times.

“We travel on Tuesday so we have only Wednesday and Thursday to train. It’s not so easy but in football, you have to be ready for this situation. If you ask me if it’s the best solution, then no.”
