Malaysia Dismiss Peter Withe Reports

The Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) has dismissed reports suggesting that they are about to appoint Peter Withe as the coach of the national team.

Following a first half deadlock, substitute Mohd Safee Sali nailed a brace with goals in the 68th and 90th minute as Indra Putra Mahayuddin scored the other goal in the 72nd minute for the win.

The South-east Asian nation has fallen on hard times in recent years and last week exited the region's AFF Suzuki Cup at the group stage.

Defeats at the hands of Vietnam and Thailand ended Malaysia's interest in the competition and it came less than 18 months after their disastrous Asian Cup performance.

B. Sathianathan is the current coach but is likely to be on his way out but even if that is the case, Withe will not be his replacement.

"Definitely, Withe is out. We have never considered him to be our new coach in the first place," Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) general secretary Azzuddin Ahmad told AFP.

"It is up to the FAM president to decide if Malaysia will stick to the present local coach or hire a new foreign coach," he said.

Azzuddin refused to say whether any new man be from overseas.

"I do not have a list of possible foreign coaches," he said.
