In his new assignment, Lim will be in charge of the all levels of coaching course - from the AFC 'C' Certificate Coaching course to the FC Pro Diploma Coaching course.

The 62-year-old had previously worked with Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) as well as the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) as a technical director.

This contract with the FAT is expected to last over a 2-year period.

Lim is of course the elder brother of National Football Development Programme (NFDP) director, Lim Teong Kim.

While it is great to see a Malaysian coach being valued overseas, the question that has to be asked is why such talents not being retained in the country to help Malaysia's own football development - whether from a player or coaching aspect.
