Kelantan Darul Naim Appoints South Korean Park Jae Hong as Head Coach for 2024-2025 Liga Super Season

Kelantan Darul Naim (KDN) has officially introduced their new head coach, Park Jae-hong, for the 2024/2025 Liga Malaysia (Liga M) season. The 46-year-old former South Korean national player accepted the offer in February, but the announcement was delayed due to certain reasons.

KDN president Rozi Muhamad confirmed the appointment of Park Jae-hong as the team's new head coach for the upcoming Liga Super season. While waiting for Jae-hong's arrival, assistant head coach Rezal Zambery Yahya has been in charge of the team's training. Jae-hong is set to join the team on April 23.

The team management has high hopes that Jae-hong, who will be assisted by Rezal Zambery, will bring positive changes to the team's style of play and make them competitive against other teams. KDN has also signed four young South Korean imports to join the team for the upcoming season.

Why this matters: KDN is aiming to improve their performance compared to the previous season, where they finished third from the bottom in the Liga Super. As the sole representative from Kelantan in the league this season, KDN is hoping to attract more supporters to the stadium with their new signings and coaching staff.

Park Jae-hong has previously coached Yangju Citizen, a club in the third division of the South Korean league (K3). "The team management has high expectations that Jaehong, who will be assisted by Rezal Zambery, will introduce positive changes to the team's style of play and make them competitive against other teams," said Rozi Muhamad. With the appointment of the new head coach and the signing of four young South Korean imports, KDN is determined to improve their performance in the 2024/2025 Liga Super season.
