Shellito among trio eyeing Malacca post

MALACCA: Three candidates are keen to take over as Super League team Malacca's football coach but the state is in no hurry to find a replacement for K. Devan who left after three matches in charge. 

Malacca, who lost their opening three games, earned their first point on Wednesday when they held fancied Malacca Telekom to a 2-2 draw. Earlier they lost Selangor (0-1), Perlis (0-3) and Pahang (1-2). 

E. Elavarasan, who helped the team to earn promotion to the Super League this season, took charge on Wednesday and will continue to do so for the next game against Brunei. 

The trio interested in the coaching job are Azman Yussof, Ken Shelitto and Ong Kim Swee. 

Azman coached TNB Kelantan last season while Ken after stints with Perak and MPPJ is now conducting coaching clinics in Sabah with the state FA. Kim Swee was Malacca's coach in 2005 and is a former state and Barcelona Olympics squad stalwart.  

“We are still negotiating with the three. A final decision is expected to be made after our return from Brunei,” said Elavarasan.
