MHC names Kannagi as Young Tigress coach

22nd December, 2020

KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Hockey Confederation (MHC) yesterday named former national player, A Kannagi as the coach of the Young Tigress squad, who will be making their debut in the Malaysian Hockey League next year.

MHC president, Datuk Seri Subahan Kamal said Kannagi was selected based on her experience in the field of coaching since 2013 and her ability to find new talent, adding that it was also a move to empower women coaches.

Subahan said the Young Tigress was formed to provide opportunities to players with potential who failed to get a place in the national women’s squad, known as the 2026 Project squad managed by Nasihin Nubli Ibrahim.

“We identified a lot of young talent, but only 30 players can be absorbed in the national squad. Our women’s team is ranked 20th in the world, but it can be better than that, so we want to give exposure to more young players.”

“This is not a one-off team, we will try to give them more exposure such as international tournaments and training with the national squad. But we leave the decision to Nasihin and KHM Technical Director Paul Revington,” he said at a press conference here yesterday.

Kannagi will be assisted by two assistant coaches, Roshin Nordin and Mohamad Sabri Mohamad, while Mohammad Nazrin Yahya has been appointed as the team’s manager.

Kannagi, who played for the Malaysian Tigress squad from 1997 to 2012 at the Asian and Commonwealth Games, ventured into coaching after her retirement, besides also serving as a teacher at Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Seri Titiwangsa. – Bernama
