THE good news is T-Team are here to stay.
But the Kuala Terengganu Football Association team will have to undergo a complete change before the start of the new football season.
"That is bad news for not only the players and coaches but for us in the management as well," said team manager Rozi Mamat.
Rozi, who is also State Youth and Sports Committee chairman, said the change will be massive from top to bottom.
"Chances are, I will no longer be the team manager next year and the same can be said for many others in the team.
"But the most important thing is, the state government has agreed in principle to continue funding the team," he said.
Among the notable changes will be the head coach post. Rozi indicated at least three names have been identified as possible replacement for Yunus Alif.
"Yunus did good in keeping us in the Super League during his two-year tenure and we will always remember our adventure in the Malaysia Cup semi-finals last year.
"But it is now time for a big change and almost everybody in our camp knows that they cannot avoid the inevitable," he said.
The rumour mill has been churning out names such as Selangor PKNS coach Abdul Rahman Ibrahim, Selangor coach Irfan Bakti and Sarawak coach Robert Albert as possible candidates for the new coaching position.
Yunus, who is not overly disappointed with the overall performance of his team this season, said the time has come for him to leave T-Team.
