National Under-23 Head Coach Aide Iskandar has tested positive for dengue, the Football Association of Singapore (FAS) said in a statement on Monday (Apr 27).
He has been hospitalised and National U-23 assistant coaches S Subramani and Kadir Yahya will take charge of the daily training of the SEA Games squad in his absence, it added.
In a Facebook post on Tuesday, FAS said Aide is recovering and said he is “grateful to everyone for their concern”.
“I am feeling better, and I hope to be able to get out soon and join the team for centralised training,” he wrote. “To my players, I just want to say stay focused and keep working hard. I’ll see you guys soon.”
