SINGAPORE, Nov 1 (Reuters) - Kelantan's victorious coach B.
Sathianathan is refusing to commit his future to the newly
crowned Malaysia Cup champions as he awaits the result of an
appeal against a six-month ban.
Sathianathan had his suspension temporarily lifted to
enable him to guide Kelantan from the bench to their first
Malaysia Cup triumph in the event's 89-year history on Saturday
with a 2-1 win over 2009 champions Negeri Sembilan.
That victory was greeted by a delirious Kelantan section of
the more-than 85,000 sellout crowd at the Bukit Jalil national
stadium, but Sathianathan's thoughts swiftly switched to the
"I will take a break for two months first and then decide.
Don't forget, I could still be suspended for the next six
months," Sathianathan said when asked of his immediate plans.
"I don't have a (written) contract, to be honest. My
understanding with Tan Sri (Annuar Musa, Kelantan FA president)
is based on a handshake. I did not want to be tied down."
Sathianathan was given the six-month suspension last month
for comments he had made to the media about FAM decisions.
