Rajagobal appointed as new Brunei head coach

Former Malaysia head coach K. Rajagobal has been appointed by the National Football Association of Brunei Darussalam (NFABD) to lead their national senior team.

Astro Arena reporter Fina Nasrom confirmed on Monday that the 64-year-old would return to coaching after last overseeing PKNS before they underwent a revamp in 2019.

The experienced coach, who memorably guided Malaysia to their first AFF Championship triumph in 2010, was reportedly one of three candidates shortlisted for the role.

"At first there was an NFABD representative who contacted me last August to see if I would be interested to be Brunei head coach or not.

"I said we could discuss more on it and we went from there," Rajagobal told Astro Arena recently.

Brunei, whose last major tournament appearance was the 1996 AFF Championship, are currently ranked 191st among 210 national teams in the world.
