I was at Studio 3 in Astro (Bukit Jalil), in the midst of joining Jason Dasey and Abbas Saad on the weekly Four-Four-Two programme when I got a message from my work mate K.Rajan who informed me that Kelantan coach B.Satianathan won the 100Plus-FAM National Best Coach Award.
I couldn't stop smiling.
I would have loved to see the faces of the FAM officials when his name was announced. After all, it was they who had earlier slapped him with a six months suspension and an RM2,000 fine for speaking against 'policy matters'.
Never knew stating the obvious on fixtures were considered policy matters. Oh well...
Congratulations to Satianathan and the rest of the winners. Keep up the good work and hoping for a more exciting season next year.
