JOHOR BARU,. Super League leaders for the current season Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) received a severe blow when their chief coach Ulisses Morais announced his resignation yesterday.
The announcement made in an entry in the official Facebook website of JDT-Johor Southern Tigers last night had clearly been a shock to many people when it received 1,400 comments from football fans besides the news being shared more than 600 times.
Morais, 58, who had managed the Southern Tigers squad for the past nine months in place of Mario Gomez, said the decision had to be made after taking into account the health of the family.
He expressed his gratitude to the owner of the club Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim for having given his trust to him in running the club.
Morais’s resignation would certainly give significant impact to JDT when it was now leading the Super League with nine points from four matches, leading Terengganu by only a point with a total of eight points from four matches.
