If you think the job of the head coach is concentrated solely on the training field and on match-days, then think again. Dary was at the office to supervise the paperwork for the forthcoming first-team trip to Singapore for the RHB Singapore Cup, that included sticking portraits of each player onto competition entry forms, as well as organizing travel arrangements for half of his Academy boys who will also be travelling to Singapore in a couple of weeks time for a six-a-side tournament. The other half of the Academy will then head to Vietnam for a series of matches too. There was also the little matter of arranging some friendly matches next week to give a run-out to some of the players who haven't played in recent weeks. These were just a few items on a long list he was working through before thinking about this afternoon's training session with the first-team squad. We also discussed the possibility of staging the AFC President's Cup finals here in Cambodia. Not such a daunting prospect now after the successful staging of the qualifying group round last week. But that's another story altogether. For the moment, Dary is concentrating on the first-team and their match against the Army tomorrow, and of course his Academy boys, who I know think the world of their coach.
