City boys return home for break


KUCHING: Premier League club Kuching City FC (KCFC) will be on home soil for a week’s breather from Malaysia Cup action.

In the Group B opener on Sept 26, they lost to Terengganu 2-0. They then played to a 2-2 draw against Perak in the following match on Sept 29.

With the Malaysia Cup taking a month-long break, the City Boys will only play on Oct 30 – against Selangor.

On Thursday, KCFC chief executive officer Iswandi Ali Hassan said “a week’s rest will do the team a world of good, especially since they have been away from their loved ones for quite some time,” Iswandi said.

“We will return to Johor Bahru on Oct 9 to resume training,” he added.

Head coach Irfan Bakti Abu Salim was also a relieved man now that the Malaysia Cup competition is on a long break.

“The players need the long break. It also allows the injured ones to fully recover.”

Terengganu currently lead the group with six points, followed by Selangor (three), Perak (one) and Kuching City FC (one).
