PETALING JAYA: UEFA Pro Licence coach Fritz Schmid is the new Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) technical director.
FAM have engaged the 55-year-old Swiss on a three-year contract to assist in the development of football and oversee the progress of the national and project teams.
FAM general-secretary Datuk Hamidin Mohd Amin said Schmid would begin work on May 2.
“We will draw up the job scope for Schmid and it will complement the progress of the national team,” said Hamidin on Tuesday.
The technical director’s post had been vacant since Lim Kim Chon’s contract ended in May last year.
Schmid has 30 years’ experience in football, including serving in amateur and elite youth football as well as various levels of professional football.
In his coaching career, he has worked for English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur as well as Swiss clubs Grasshopper Club Zurich, FC Aarau, SC Kriens, FC Zurich and FC Basel.
He has worked as a coaching instructor for the Swiss Football Association, UEFA and FIFA for more than 20 years.
His last assignment was as assistant coach with the Austria national team since 2011.
