Calisto declares Stag season

Formerly coaching the Vietnamese national team, the newly appointed coach of Muang Thong United, Henrique Calisto has faced Tampines Rovers’ striker-in-chief, Aleksandar Duric many times on the international scene. And when Calisto was asked if he had a special plan to stop the Stags’ top scorer, who has already netted four goals in four games this season, the 47-year old coach jokingly answered, “Yes, yes. I have a solution, I want to kill him.”

Duric will surely be the Stags’ main attacking threat when he captains his Tampines Rovers out to face the Thai Premier League champions when they meet in the AFC Cup Group G encounter on Wednesday, 16 March 2011 at the Jalan Besar Stadium. However, Muang Thong are hardly pushovers with a squad that features the likes of Thai internationals Datsakorn ThonglaoNattaporn Phanritand former Fulham player Zesh Rehman.

The Thai side only in the AFC Cup because they failed at the last hurdle to qualify for the AFC Champions League, while Tampines are Singapore’s only representatives on the continent and the Tampines captain knows the challenges for his side having been in both competitions previously with SAFFC.

“I think this competition is getting harder and harder than a few years back and teams you play against are getting very hard and Muang Thong is one of those teams. They should have probably be in the Champions League, but what has happen has happened,” said Duric.

“Tomorrow will be tough game for us as we both play a same passing style, so it will be a good game.”

Both teams currently have one win from the opening game and a win for either side would put them top of the table in Group G. The match will kickoff at 7.30pm at the Jalan Besar Stadium and tickets are available $6 for adults and $2 for students and senior citizens at the stadium on match day
