head coach has left his position after the disappointing campaign during in their home soil.

The 40-year-old tactician took charge in October 2013 and led the Young Lions to clinch the third place at the 2013 SEA Games edition.

However, following a 1-0 defeat to Indonesia U-23 on Friday, the Singaporean coach has opted to bring an end his tenure following his failure to lead the team qualified for semifinals.

“Starting two years ago, I tried to build a team for this SEA Games. I faced a lot of challenges as coach,” said Aide after the game.

“Tonight, Irfan Fandi and Faris Ramli weren’t fully fit so I could not start them. I’m very proud of my boys, they pushed for the equaliser even when we were one man down.

“I thank you all for your support. I want to go back to my family now. They have been waiting for me for a long time,” he added.
