PETALING JAYA: Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) coach Cesar Jimenez could be given the boot following the team’s dismal run.
The Southern Tigers have spent millions to become a footballing force but they are currently languishing in sixth place in the 12-team Super League. They have only four wins from 11 matches and 16 points.
The straw which broke the camel’s back came last week when the star-studded team were held to a 1-1 draw by 10-man PKNS at the Shah Alam Stadium.
Rumours are swirling that JDT officials’ patience have run out with Jimenez and he will be shown the door with manager Bojan Hodak named as the caretaker coach for the rest of the season.
It is learnt that the Croatian, who guided Kelantan to a treble – Malaysia Cup, FA Cup and Super League in 2012 – has taken charge of the team’s training since Monday.
An announcement on the fate of the 54-year-old Jimenez is expected to be made by JDT soon.
JDT are also looking for a replacement for highly-rated Pablo Aimar as the former Valencia player has been plagued by injuries since joining the team in September.
