FOREWORD

HRH PRESIDENT OF THE FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION OF MALAYSIA (FAM) Persatuan Bolasepak Malaysia (FAM) amat mengalu-alukan langkah yang diambil oleh kerajaan melalui Kementerian Belia dan Sukan (KBS) untuk merangka dan melaksanakan Pelan Pembangunan Bola Sepak Negara (PPBN) ini. Dengan bantuan dan sokongan yang padu daripada pihak kerajaan, FAM percaya usaha untuk memantapkan prestasi sukan bola sepak negara akan dapat dicapai dengan jayanya. FAM turut menghargai kesediaan pelbagai pemegang yang berkaitan untuk turut menjayakan agenda pembangunan bola sepak ini, terutamanya Kementerian Pendidikan Malaysia, kerana sistem pembangunan bakat di sekolah-sekolah merupakan landasan kritikal dalam menghasilkan generasi pemain bola sepak yang berkaliber satu hari nanti. FAM berpandangan bahawa negara kita sememangnya memerlukan pelan perancangan jangka panjang yang menyeluruh dengan landasan penyertaan yang meluas bagi sukan bola sepak. Selain daripada itu, ianya memerlukan struktur pembangunan bakat yang sistematik, dan didukungi oleh aspek-aspek lain seperti pembangunan kejurulatihan, kemudahan dan peralatan yang lengkap dan mencukupi serta struktur pertandingan yang tersusun. Oleh itu, langkah yang diambil oleh KBS ini amat bertepatan dengan waktunya dan FAM amat berharap agar semua pihak dapat menggembeleng usaha dan tenaga ke arah menjayakan Pelan ini. Sebagai badan peneraju yang bertanggungjawab dalam membangun dan memajukan prestasi pasukan bola sepak kebangsaan, FAM sendiri termasuk semua persatuan di peringkat negeri dan daerah akan memberikan sokongan yang padu bagi memastikan usaha ini dapat direalisasikan sepenuhnya. Pelan ini merupakan pelengkap kepada pelbagai usaha FAM untuk meningkatkan prestasi pasukan kebangsaan serta skuad pelapis. Ini kerana FAM yakin pelaksanaan Pelan ini akan dapat menyediakan gagasan bakat pemain bola sepak yang lebih besar dan mantap untuk dimanfaatkan oleh pasukan kebangsaan pada masa hadapan. Dengan ini, hasrat kita semua untuk melihat Malaysia kembali menjadi salah satu gergasi bola sepak di rantau ini akan tercapai. Saya mengambil kesempatan ini untuk mengucapkan setinggi-tinggi penghargaan dan terima kasih kepada pihak KBS yang telah mengambil inisiatif yang begitu baik untuk terus membangunkan sukan bola sepak kita. Saya berharap program ini akan mencapai kejayaan yang cemerlang sebagaimana yang kita harap-harapkan. Semoga sukan bola sepak kita akan mencatat kejayaan demi kejayaan selepas ini, di mana nama pasukan kebangsaan Malaysia akan kembali harum serta cemerlang di arena antarabangsa. Semoga segala usaha yang murni ini mendapat keberkatan daripada Allah S.W.T. Sekian, terima kasih.

FOREWORD

THE HONOURABLE PRIME MINISTER OF MALAYSIA

Bola sepak merupakan sukan yang paling popular di dunia dan juga di Malaysia. Pernah terdapat sejarah yang cemerlang di mana kita pernah dua kali melayakkan diri ke Sukan Olimpik, dua kali memenangi pingat gangsa di Sukan Asia serta meraih banyak kejayaan yang lain di peringkat serantau. Ketika itu, nama Malaysia berada setaraf dengan negara-negara seperti Iran, Korea Selatan serta Jepun. Pemain-pemain kita pula sentiasa disegani dan ada di kalangan mereka yang diiktiraf sebagai antara pemain terbaik Asia. Namun begitu keadaan ini telah berubah setelah kian lama. Walau bagaimanapun, terdapat banyak lagi ruang untuk negara terus memperbaiki kedudukan ini memandangkan bola sepak merupakan sukan nombor satu negara. Sudah tentu kedudukan dan prestasi yang baik akan membanggakan kita semua. Dengan perkembangan ini, inilah masa yang paling sesuai untuk kita terus membangunkan prestasi bola sepak kebangsaan agar kita kembali ke era kegemilangan Malaysia sebagai jaguh serantau. Satu perancangan yang holistik dan komprehensif perlu dilaksanakan untuk mengembalikan zaman kegemilangan sukan bola sepak yang pernah kita kecapi. Oleh itu, langkah yang diambil oleh Kementerian Belia dan Sukan (KBS) untuk melaksanakan Pelan Pembangunan Bola Sepak Negara 2014-2020 (PPBN) amatlah dialu-alukan dan bertepatan dengan masanya. Program yang akan dilaksanakan secara menyeluruh di semua peringkat ini kelak diharap akan dapat melahirkan generasi baru sukan ini yang berbakat besar, berpotensi tinggi dan mampu bersaing dengan antara yang terbaik di dunia. Semoga nama Malaysia akan menjadi sebutan dengan kejayaan-kejayaan cemerlang yang bakal kita kecapi di peringkat antarabangsa. Saya berharap usaha KBS ini akan mendapat sokongan semua pihak terutama pemegang-pemegang taruh yang penting seperti Kementerian Pendidikan Malaysia dan Persatuan Bolasepak Malaysia (FAM). Tanpa sokongan yang padu serta komitmen yang jitu daripada kesemua pihak yang berkaitan, Pelan ini sudah tentu tidak akan dapat dilaksanakan dengan jayanya. Pelaksanaan Pelan ini juga memerlukan kerjasama rapi dari semua pihak, di mana pelaksanaan kerajaan semata-mata tidak akan mencukupi. Oleh yang demikian, saya amat mengharapkan agar pihak swasta dan badan korporat dapat tampil untuk membantu meringankan beban kerajaan bagi melaksanakan Pelan ini. Sesungguhnya Pelan ini merupakan agenda dan dasar nasional dan kejayaannya kelak merupakan kejayaan kita semua. Saya mendoakan agar segala usaha murni kita ini akan mendapat keberkatan daripada Allah S.W.T. Saya juga mengucapkan terima kasih kepada KBS yang telah berjaya menghasilkan Pelan ini dan seterusnya memastikan program ini mencapai objektif sepertimana yang disasarkan. Semoga sukan bola sepak kita akan kembali berada megah di persada antarabangsa. Sekian, terima kasih.

FOREWORD

THE HONOURABLE DEPUTY PRIME MINISTER OF MALAYSIA, AND THE EDUCATION MINISTER OF MALAYSIA Sukan bola sepak merupakan sukan yang penting dalam agenda pembangunan sukan Kementerian Pendidikan Malaysia (KPM). Sukan ini sentiasa mendapat keutamaan dalam usaha untuk melahirkan lebih ramai pemain yang berbakat dan berpotensi untuk mewakili negara pada masa akan datang. KPM telah menubuhkan banyak Pusat Latihan Daerah, Pusat Latihan Negeri dan Sekolah Sukan Negeri di seluruh negara yang disediakan dengan pelbagai kemudahan dan kepakaran bagi membolehkan atlet-atlet menjalani latihan dan menyertai pertandingan sepanjang tahun. Malah Sekolah-Sekolah Sukan Malaysia juga turut menempatkan bakat-bakat bola sepak terbaik yang dipilih daripada pelbagai peringkat umur. KPM juga turut mengelolakan kejohanan-kejohanan dari peringkat daerah serta negeri sehinggalah ke peringkat kebangsaan dan pada masa yang sama, pasukan MSSM turut menyertai pelbagai kejohanan antarabangsa seperti Kejohanan Majlis Sukan Sekolah-sekolah ASEAN dan Asia serta kejohanan-kejohanan jemputan yang lain. Sejarah telah membuktikan bahawa hampir kesemua pemain-pemain yang mewakili negara lahir daripada sistem pembangunan bakat di peringkat sekolah. Dalam pada itu, KPM amat mengalu-alukan langkah yang diambil oleh Kementerian Belia dan Sukan dalam merancang dan melaksanakan Pelan Pembangunan Bolasepak Negara (PPBN) ini. Pelan ini amat penting dalam usaha kerajaan untuk mengembalikan zaman kegemilangan bola sepak negara yang pernah kita kecapi pada satu masa dahulu. Program ini akan dilaksanakan dengan mengenalpasti pemainpemain berbakat di kalangan yang berumur di antara 7 hingga 17 tahun, di mana mereka akan ditempatkan di pusat-pusat latihan yang dikenalpasti bagi menjalani latihan yang berkualiti sepanjang tahun. Pelaksanaan pelan ini akan melibatkan KPM sebagai pemegang taruh utama kerana pada peringkat umur 7 hingga 17 tahun tersebut, sebahagian besar komponen yang digunakan bagi menjayakan program ini berada di bawah seliaan dan tanggungjawab KPM termasuk pelajar dan para guru yang bertugas sebagai jurulatih. Tambahan lagi, padang dan lain-lain kemudahan sekolah juga akan turut digunakan sebagai pusat latihan dan pertandingan di bawah pelan ini. Sehubungan itu, KPM akan memberikan sepenuh kerjasama dalam menjayakan program ini. Inisiatif di bawah pelan ini adalah selaras dengan dasar Satu Murid, Satu Sukan yang diamalkan oleh KPM di mana semua pelajar harus melibatkan diri di dalam sekurang-kurangnya satu jenis sukan. Oleh yang demikian, dengan kemudahan dan kepakaran yang akan disediakan nanti, saya berharap agar lebih ramai pelajar akan menunjukkan minat untuk bergiat dalam kegiatan sukan terutamanya bola sepak agar hasrat kerajaan untuk melahirkan lebih ramai pemain bola sepak yang hebat akan dapat dicapai satu hari nanti. Akhir kata, sekalung tahniah saya ucapkan kepada Kementerian Belia dan Sukan, Jawatankuasa Pembangunan Bolasepak Negara dan semua pihak yang terlibat dalam merangka dan menjayakan pelan ini. Insya Allah, harapan rakyat yang tinggi menggunung untuk melihat kejayaan cemerlang dan berterusan pasukan bola sepak kebangsaan kita akan tercapai juga dengan kesungguhan dan keikhlasan semua pihak dalam melaksanakan objektif ini. Semoga Allah SWT memberkati segala perancangan dan usaha kita. Sekian, terima kasih.

FOREWORD

THE HONOURABLE MINISTER OF YOUTH AND SPORTS OF MALAYSIA Bola sepak adalah sukan nombor satu di negara malah di seluruh dunia. Ianya merupakan sukan universal yang diminati seluruh peringkat usia dan segenap lapisan masyarakat. Tiada sukan lain yang dapat membangkitkan emosi dan menyemarakkan semangat sepertimana bola sepak. Oleh itu, walaupun perhatian akan terus diberi kepada sukan-sukan lain, saya mendukung visi untuk melaksanakan perubahan jangka masa panjang dalam memastikan sukan bola sepak negara berada di kemuncak kegemilangan dan kecemerlangan pada masa hadapan. Ke arah ini, Kementerian Belia dan Sukan (KBS) sebagai kementerian yang bertanggungjawab kepada pembangunan dan prestasi sukan di negara ini telah menyediakan satu Pelan Pembangunan Bola Sepak Negara 2014-2020 (PPBN), yang bertujuan untuk membangunkan semula sukan ini secara menyeluruh yang melibatkan semua aspek pembangunan seperti penyertaan atlet, kejurulatihan, kemudahan dan pertandingan. Sasaran utama adalah untuk menyediakan satu landasan bagi menggilap bakat pemain-pemain yang berumur antara tujuh sehingga 17 tahun ke arah menjadi wira bola sepak negara pada masa hadapan. Pelan ini juga mewujudkan falsafah bola sepak negara yang dikenali sebagai DNA bagi menghasilkan corak dan cara permainan yang paling sesuai dengan pemain kita, dan ianya akan dipraktikkan di semua peringkat, daripada peringkat pembangunan sehinggalah ke pasukan kebangsaan. Pelan ini akan memastikan pemain-pemain yang dilahirkan mempunyai tahap kecergasan, ketahanan mental serta nilai-nilai murni yang tinggi yang merupakan elemen kritikal dalam membentuk jaguh bola sepak negara yang lengkap dan mampu bersaing di pertandingan peringkat antarabangsa. Di bawah Pelan ini juga, program bola sepak negara akan lebih bersifat inklusif, di mana bakatbakat muda yang berminat akan diberi peluang untuk turut serta di akademi-akademi latihan yang akan disediakan dengan pelbagai kemudahan dan kepakaran di setiap daerah menjelang tahun 2020. Pada masa yang sama, program pengenalpastian bakat dan pencarian bakat (talent identification dan talent scouting) akan dilaksanakan di seluruh negara bagi memastikan bakat muda yang dipilih benar-benar mempunyai potensi untuk terus meningkat maju pada masa akan datang.

Maklum balas serta pandangan mereka amat saya hargai dan semoga hasrat murni kita untuk menjayakan pelan ini akan mendapat rahmat dan keberkatan dari Allah S.W.T. Sekian, terima kasih.

PROLOGUE


INTRODUCTION

INTRODUCTION Football is the number one sport in terms of popularity in Malaysia that was introduced by the British not long after their arrival on Malayan shores. As early as 1905, a league-based competition was organised and this was followed by the establishment of the national football team under the leadership of a British colonial officer, Andrew Caldecott, who was the first president of the Football Association of Malaya (FAM) in 1933. At the end of World War II, Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj, who was to become the nation’s first Prime Minister in 1957, was chosen to lead the FAM in 1951 and take the country’s football to eminence, especially on the international level.

During the early 1950s to 1960s, Malaya had one of the strongest teams in Asia alongside South Korea. With impressive names such as the late Abdul Ghani Minhat, Arthur Koh, G. Govindaraju, Robert Choe, Edwin Dutton and Stanley Gabriel, the team achieved its greatest triumph by winning the bronze medal at the 1962 Asian Games in Jakarta, Indonesia. The glory of the national football team did not end there, as the likes of Namat Abdullah, Shaharuddin Abdullah, Wong Fook Chuan, N. Thanabalan, Zulkifli Norbit and Abdullah Nordin helped the now renamed Malaysia qualify for the 1972 Munich Olympics

by beating Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and the Philippines in the qualifying rounds. The team continued to excel when they finished third and bagged the bronze medal in Tehran at the 1974 Asian Games. They also qualified for two consecutive Asian Cups in 1976 and 1980 with legends such as Mokhtar Dahari, Santokh Singh, Soh Chin Aun and goalkeeper R. Arumugam inspiring the team. The sport continued to flourish in the country as another Olympic qualification was sealed in 1980 with the emergence of young strike duo Hassan Sani and James Wong. The government however,


INTRODUCTION

boycotted the Moscow Games as a sign of protest to the Soviet Union’s invasion of Afghanistan. A new generation of players, led by the likes of Zainal Abidin Hassan, Serbegeth Singh, Lim Teong Kim and Dollah Salleh then took over the mantle in 1988 and went on to maintain the country’s impressive international record. In 1994 and 1995, the local footballing scene was rocked by a massive match-fixing scandal which saw more than 100 players and coaches detained for questioning. As a result, the Ministry of Home Affairs (KDN) banned 26 players under the 1933 Restricted Residence Act. At the same time, a total of 57 players and an assistant coach were handed suspensions ranging from one to five years after being found guilty by FAM’s disciplinary board. This unfortunate episode greatly impacted the national football landscape as fans began to lose faith in the local league and its players, consequently affecting the formation of a sound national team which stifled the nation’s ability to shine internationally.

Various efforts were initiated to restore the glory of the national football team including hiring foreign coaches like Claude Le Roy, Allan Harris, Bertalan Bicskei as well as putting the faith in local coaches such as Wan Jamak Wan Hassan, Abdul Rahman Ibrahim, Norizan Bakar, B. Sathianathan and K. Rajagobal. However, all these efforts were in vain as Malaysia’s international ranking did not improve much, but had instead slumped to a very disappointing level. Despite all that, the success of winning the ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Cup in 2010 after a 14year wait brought renewed hope for football in the country. This triumph was sandwiched in between two gold medal wins at the SEA Games by the national U-23 squad in Laos in 2009 and Indonesia in 2011. The squad however, failed to replicate that moment of glory after losing to Indonesia in the semifinals of the 2013 Myanmar SEA Games.

INTRODUCTION

EARLY STAGES OF DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMMES In 2004, the Cabinet Committee for Sports Development, mindful of the decline of Malaysian football, listed it as one of the 19 sports that should be given special attention with an intensive development programme. Although many initiatives had been taken since to ensure the success of the sport in the country, comprehensiveness and coherence was an issue and this, did not bring about a sustainable positive change. However, continued importance has been given to talent identification initiatives, which have proven to be the catalysts in developing young talents to this day.

In 2006, in an effort to unearth new talents, football was selected as one of the sports in the Program Sukan Teras under the watch of the National Sports Council of Malaysia (NSC). This new programme was invented to replace the Tunas Cemerlang programme, a syllabus that was in use for 17-years prior. The Tunas Cemerlang programme, established in 1989, was a football talent development programme designed for students aged 13 to 15 and managed by the NSC in collaboration with the Majlis Sukan Sekolah Malaysia (MSSM). Its main aim was to produce potential athletes and develop their skills in schools or training centres equipped with basic facilities such as hostels and fields/courts as well as qualified instructors among the teachers to train athletes all year long. This program consisted of 42 training centres and involved 1,295 students and 93 coaches.

16

The Program Sukan Teras meanwhile was a similar talent development programme with the target group being students aged 10 to 15, conducted by NSC in collaboration with FAM and the Ministry of Education (MOE). In addition, a total of 20 U-12 centres involving 24 coaches and 600 students, and 43 U-15 centres (98 coaches and 1,315 students) were also established. However the approach was modified in 2009. The programme was instead brought to schools, encouraged by the fact that schools have been more effective and efficient as a centre for sporting talent development. The implementation of the Football Development Programme at school level was left entirely to the MOE, to correspond with the Ministry’s big role in the development of sports. MOE implemented the Sukan Prestasi Tinggi Sekolah (SPTS) programme which involved seven types of sports, including football.


INTRODUCTION

In 2008, the Sukan Prestasi Tinggi Sekolah (SPTS) programme for football involved three categories:

INTRODUCTION

In addition, KBS and MOE joined hands to introduce a talent identification programme. The purpose of the programme was to identify and select potential players in various sports, including talented footballers at the grassroots level. Under this programme, selected players were taught the various elements of sports science (diet, nutrition, physical conditioning, psychology, physiology, biomechanics and performance analysis) at the Sekolah Sukan Negeri (SSN). This move was introduced to encourage the players to live the life of a highperformance athlete from a young age. Although many programmes to develop footballing talents have been implemented, the government acknowledged that the issues plaguing the sport at the national level were too complex, and covered a variety of factors that could not be resolved without a comprehensive approach. Therefore, the Cabinet Committee on Sports Development, chaired by the Deputy Prime Minister on December 1, 2008 decided to establish a joint committee between KBS, MOE, the Ministry of Higher Education (at that time) and FAM. The committee was tasked to study the problems of football as a whole and provide a detailed roadmap to strategically and systematically address them.

18


INTRODUCTION

As a result, a Special Working Committee was established in 2009 consisting of representatives of KBS, MOE, FAM, NSC, the National Sports Institute (NSI), the Malaysian Football Coaches Association as well as former national footballers. The Committee was tasked to study all the existing football development programmes as a whole, especially at grassroots level. Thus, the committee discussed related issues, and drafted strategies and plans to improve the ranking of Malaysian national football. The results were collected and compiled in a document titled the Pelan Tindakan Untuk Meningkatkan Kembali Prestasi Bola Sepak Negara. In addition, the National Football Development Fund (with an initial allocation of RM10 million) was announced by the Prime Minister at a ceremony to celebrate the nation’s success at the 2009 Laos SEA Games on January 12, 2010 at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre (PICC). At the same time, the Jawatankuasa Pembangunan Bola Sepak Negara (JPBN) was also established to act as an advisory body and a watchdog to football development programmes conducted by implementing agencies at various levels. The committee also set it as a national mission to qualify for the Youth World Cup, an U-17 tournament, in 2019. To further hone promising talents in football, many centres of excellence aimed at training young talents were established throughout the country, such as the Pusat Latihan MyKids Soccer under NSC’s supervision and the Pusat Latihan Daerah (PLD) under MOE’s supervision for youth players. A head coach and seven part-time assistants were assigned to each training centre. Under the Tenth Malaysia Plan meanwhile, a new Akademi Bola Sepak Negara was planned and completed in 2012.

19


INTRODUCTION

In addition, various competitions dedicated to the development of talents were also organised, such as the Champion of Champions Tournament (CoC) which were the highlight of the U-12 tournaments. The aim was to gather the winners of the U-12 football championships endorsed by FAM and the State Football Associations. The first edition of the CoC was held from December 11 to 18 in Muar, Johor involving eight teams. The various programmes mentioned above somewhat proved fruitful as there were some success achieved in the age-based football tournaments as stated below:

INTRODUCTION

CURRENT DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMMES While success was achieved to a certain degree, none of the programmes were able to yield the consistency required to reinstate Malaysia as a respected football power. There were still a number of issues that needed to be addressed so that all the stakeholders in the National Football Development Plan did not act in silos or performed their duties with different objectives or methods. With this in mind, in 2013, the Minister of Youth and Sports took the initiative to ensure football development in the country is implemented in a comprehensive manner with out-of the-box strategies. For starters, a comprehensive transformation of the football development programme was introduced, where the emphasis on a number of development fundamentals will be provided through a plan known as the National Football Development Plan (NFDP). The NFDP is a long-term plan, with the first phase slated to commence in 2014 until 2020. For the first time, the football development programme will be based on a philosophy unique to our country, called the national football DNA, formed by taking into account the best practices in the unearthing of talented young players. This football DNA will be applied at every level of the NFDP coaching for players aged seven to 17 across the country. The DNA will also be the point of reference for all the stakeholders in carrying out their responsibilities, and will also make possible the birth of a clear, coherent direction that can serve as a guide in creating world class Malaysian footballers. Under the NFDP, access to training centres, structured training patterns and facilities that meet the standards will be further enhanced. Apart from that, the exercise to increase the number of coaches and competitions will be done concurrently in stages. The Pusat Latihan MyKids Soccer (seven to 12-years-old) will be rebranded as the Akademi Tunas while football programmes for kids aged 12 to 17 will be conducted at the Pusat Latihan Daerah (PLD). The Akademi Bola Sepak Negara in Gambang will be given a new name - Akademi Bola Sepak Negara Mokhtar Dahari (AMD). The name was chosen in the hope it will help inspire all young talents to follow in the glorious footsteps of the late Super Mokh one day.

THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL DEVELOPMENT PLAN (NFDP)

NFDP RATIONALE KBS aims to improve the initiatives that have been developed to date and intends to rectify any shortcomings from the implementation of previous development programmes. KBS also wants to take national football to greater heights through a new and comprehensive approach with sustainability in mind. It is hoped that this new approach through the NFDP which is based on the five strategic thrusts above will spur development in a holistic manner, so that more people will be drawn to participate and excel in the sport of football. Accordingly, a national football philosophy or DNA will be introduced to develop young players who will possess technical and tactical skills, but also have their distinct playing style which would give them an advantage over their regional rivals. This group of players will also be shaped to develop a high degree of mental and physical toughness. This football DNA will be used in and sewn into each stage of the NFDP training and will serve as a guide to all stakeholders in the execution of their responsibilities in creating world class Malaysian footballers. A greater and deeper focus will be afforded to the talent scouting and identification initiatives, which is the key to success of football development in the country. The NFDP’s desire is to see a greater and steadier development of talent channels. Cooperation and coordination between the relevant stakeholders will also be further strengthened and streamlined. Each field of work and the jurisdiction of the related governing bodies will also be outlined more clearly to avoid overlapping of duties. This is imperative to ensure that each responsible agency is able to perform its tasks efficiently and effectively.

26


THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL DEVELOPMENT PLAN (NFDP)

NFDP PHASES In the history of modern football, there are several key factors that have served as catalysts to the success of a nation’s football development programme. Among them is the natural environment for sports that exists in a society, which is then optimised through a rigorous football development programme, such as the one found in the United States. There are also countries like Japan that have succeeded in creating an effectively implemented, structured ecosystem

2014

for football. In essence, the approaches adopted by the world’s footballing superpowers are long-term plans which take a substantial amount of time to bear fruit. Recognising this fact, the NFDP was drafted as a longterm plan aimed at players aged seven to 17 and will be implemented in stages as follows: -

2030

Phase 1 (2014-2020)

Phase 2 (2021 - 2030)

Initial phase of the NFDP, focused on the following points:

An advanced phase, focused on the following points:

• Introduce a national football DNA • Intensify participation and promote competitions for players aged seven to 17-years • Restructure the administration and management of the development programme • Improve coordination between stakeholders • Step up the development of coaching • Provide adequate basic facilities at all levels

• Audit and evaluate the Phase I programme • Complete the football development ecosystem • Streamline facilities at training centres that were added in Phase 1 • Develop and educate more coaches at the community, primary and secondary school levels • Enable more joint ventures with the private sector in strengthening the development of academies under the NFDP • Provide opportunities and promote the players and coaches produced under the NFDP to the professional market • Improve the sustainability of the NFDP so that it can serve as a model for regional development • Formulate research and development (R&D) plans for sports, especially football, through partnerships with higher learning institutions

THE NFDP APPROACH


THE NFDP APPROACH

THE BIRTH OF NFDP In finding the best formula for the development of football in the country, a few steps were taken to ensure that the NFDP will be comprehensive and effective. The first initiative was a fact-finding mission under the instruction of the Minister of Youth and Sports. This initiative was aimed at getting feedback, identifying problems and setting the right priorities for football.

At the same time, the Minister of Youth and Sports also appointed Lim Teong Kim as the Director of the NFDP. Lim was the former youth team coach of Bayern Munich, one of the premier clubs in the world. He has over 30 years of experience in coaching and playing football in both Germany and Malaysia. In the creation of the NFDP, Lim was responsible for the sharing of his knowledge, experience and expertise to rejuvenate the country’s football development initiative, while keeping in mind the cultural differences between Europe and Malaysia. As part of this fact-finding mission, the views and ideas of the stakeholders and sports enthusiasts were amassed and consolidated. After coming to an initial consensus, a discussion paper was presented by the Minister of Youth

30

and Sports to the Jawatankuasa Pembangunan Bola Sepak Negara (JPBN) for consideration and further joint action. Next, a two-day workshop was organised in December 2013, attended by 120 people of various backgrounds. At the workshop, stakeholders, sports enthusiasts and relevant parties, including representatives of supporter groups, put forward invaluable opinions on football in this country. This input was then used to strengthen the NFDP. This finer version of the NFDP was presented and subsequently approved by the Cabinet to ensure continuity in the implementation and pledging of ongoing commitment from all parties involved.


THE NFDP APPROACH

Implementation of NFDP Under Jawatankuasa Pembangunan Bola Sepak Negara (JPBN) The NFDP will be based on five strategic thrusts, which will be explored further. To ensure this Plan is implemented in the best possible manner, it will be monitored by the Jawatankuasa Pembangunan Bola Sepak Negara (JPBN), which will be chaired by the the Minister of Youth and Sports himself. The JPBN members are:

The Ministry of Youth and Sports (KBS) KBS will spearhead the efforts to build the ecosystem as well as the structure of football development that is comprehensive and effective. KBS will also act as the main coordinator of the roles and responsibilities of all stakeholders associated with the development of football. This strategic Plan outlined by KBS was drawn after taking into account the thoughtful input of the relevant stakeholders. To ensure the NFDP is brought to life efficiently and effectively, KBS will continously monitors its implementation. In addition, the ministry will undertake a periodic review process to ensure the essence of the NFDP remains relevant and is based on the current environment and latest developments.

The Ministry of Education (MOE) Through the existing education system, the MOE will help to provide the infrastructure and to hone talented footballers who are still in school. The ministry will build 54 Pusat Latihan Daerah (PLD) under the Sukan Prestasi Tinggi Sekolah (SPTS) programme all over the country. All the SSN and SSM will also conduct the football development programme.

31


THE NFDP Approach

The Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) FAM is the governing body of football in the country and is responsible for all football-related activities in the country. In the context of development, FAM’s obligation is to oversee the running of the Harimau Muda team that acts as the back-up squad for the senior national team. FAM’s role also involves the conducting of coaching courses at various levels.

The National Sports Council of Malaysia (NSC) As an organisation in charge of all aspects of high performance sports, NSC’s role is to ensure the transition of the identified football talents to the next level is seamless. Currently, there are over 14 MyKids Soccer under the supervision of NSC in the country focused on developing talents aged seven to 12.

THE NFDP STRATEGIC THRUSTS


STRATEGIC THRUST 1 To Establish Style, Improve Quality And Develop One’s Self Through The National Football DNA

STRATEGIC THRUST 2 To Identify And Create National Football Icons

STRATEGIC THRUST 3 To provide Standards-Compliant Facilities To All

STRATEGIC THRUST 4 To Improve Standards Of Coaching

STRATEGIC THRUST 5 To Strengthen The Structure Of Competitions At Various Levels


STRATEGIC THRUST 1

INTRODUCTION A study conducted by the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) in 2010 found that successful footballing nations like Spain, the Netherlands and Germany have a football DNA that clearly defines their philosophy and distinctive style of play. This philosophy is implemented at all age levels in these countries and it influences aspects such as technical and tactical training, physical conditioning, psychological characteristics as well as the drawing of training plans.

In this aspect, Malaysia is definitely lagging behind as we do not have a specific DNA that would be integral to development of football in the country. All this while, the implementation of most development programmes constantly changed based on the desires and initiatives of the respective coaches. This situation was not of much help in building a strong national team, capable of competing at international level. Based on these factors, the NFDP will introduce the concept of DNA as a key to success and the focal point around which football development is built.

38


STRATEGIC THRUST 1

THE MALAYSIAN FOOTBALL DNA The national football DNA that is formed needs to be translated into modules that will be used at all implementation stages of the NFDP.

Adopt an aggressive playing style with dynamic application of pressure to dominate opponents and take control of the game Exciting and dynamic attacking style centred on individual skills, creativity and a mixture of short and long passes

Attacking starts from the back (goalkeeper) and defending from up top (strikers)

A pattern of play that is high in intensity with a fast tempo

39


STRATEGIC THRUST 1

PLAYERS’ POSITIONS AND PROFILES (SPECIFICALLY FOR DEVELOPMENT OF YOUNG TALENTS) It is the objective of this philosophy to train players to have a specific set of characteristics and skills, as described concisely below:

The NFDP will adopt a 4-4-2 training formation with a ‘diamond-shaped midfield’ and quickly revert to 4-5-1 when defending. This 4-4-2 system is chosen to unearth as many attacking talents through the NFDP. The application of this system is only for training purpose during the talent as possible development stage of players aged 12 to 17-years and is not focused on tactics. Furthermore, the 4-4-2 system is easy to apply and suitable to be instilled into young talents.

INDIVIDUAL, GROUP AND TEAM TACTICS Trainees under the NFDP programme will be trained to have a high understanding of the game and develop quick thinking that will help in implementing strategies to take control of matches. Some of the skills covered are: Transition from defence to offense 1) When in possession of the ball, the player’s first thought will be a penetrating pass in space to the striker when the opponent’s defence is not organised. 2) If it is not possible to play a penetrating pass, player must retain possession of the ball. 3) In one-on-one duels in training, the moment the defender wins the ball, the player should be very active in doing something constructive with the ball. Transition from offense to defence 1) Player must be alert to avoid being counter-attacked when moving up while defence is moving up to close space and guard the opponent attackers. 2) To avoid counter-attacks, the defense must provide good cover to each other and the player must be able to anticipate danger the moment they lose the ball. 3) As soon as possession is lost, the player nearest to the ball must make an immediate decision. He has three options: a. Apply immediate pressure on the opposing player with the ball and reclaim the ball. b. If the group of players cannot put pressure on the player with the ball, then the player nearest to him must continue putting pressure in order to allow his teammates to get back into position. c. If there is no chance at all to put pressure on the opponent with the ball, the player must retreat and get back quickly into position.

Players’ Self Development This football DNA is also important in the shaping of footballers’ mental strength and values. A versatile and complete player must not only be technically and tactically skilled, but also needs to be strong spiritually and physically, intelligent and creative, patriotic; has first class mentality, a great team spirit, a desire to win

but not afraid to lose, highly disciplined, ambitious yet humble. This is not a comprehensive list – but suffice to say these are the characteristics of a player who wants to be a champion at international level. These are the characteristics that the Plan is trying to mould under the NFDP, with emphasis placed on the following:

STRONG BASE the learning starts at seven years of age

PERSONALITY Differences in personalities and characters of each person will be considered. Every talented player will be specially attended to on individual basis, so that their characters will shine through – this in turn will result in excellent performances on the pitch.

PLAYERS’ DEVELOPMENT a. Long-term development process for talented players b. Producing technically adept players, who are responsible with the ability to think c. The need to be highly aware of tactics

MENTAL STRENGTH a. Mentally prepared to cope with stress b. Concentration throughout the game c. Confidence in oneself in difficult situations d. Show desire and eagerness in matches

44

APPLICATION OF MORAL VALUES A good player must also be an admirable, exemplary citizen.

CLEAR GAME CONCEPT AND TRAINING SESSIONS Team spirit is emphasised. All players must have the same direction in chasing success.

PSYCHOLOGY Players must be mentally strong to overcome feelings of inferiority.

WINNING MENTALITY Tremendous drive and determination to win will be nurtured. Players will also be taught not to be afraid of losing.

INTRODUCTION As of 2013, there were 1,680 players registered at MyKids Soccer, 2,775 players at Pusat Latihan Daerah (PLD), 800 players at Sekolah Sukan Negeri (SSN) and 199 players at Sekolah Sukan Malaysia (SSM), making the total number of players under the Sukan Prestasi Tinggi Sekolah to be 5,454. This number is definitely small compared to the population of almost five million students in all the primary and secondary schools in Malaysia. This problem of having a limited talent pipeline can only be overcome with the advent of a grassroots development wave that starts from when the players are in primary schools, so that we can finally achieve a balanced ratio between the number of players and the population. The comparison below shows the total number of registered and unregistered players according to countries. Obviously when compared to countries with strong grassroots programme, such as Spain and Germany, the percentage of registered players there are much higher than in our country.

ENCOURAGING PARTICIPATION Generally, an academic-based education system is seen as the main reason for the lack of competitive participation from youngsters in football. At the same time, some of the feedback received suggest that the distance factor between the training centres and the players’ residents, could cause many to give this programme a miss. In addition, there is an impression among parents that football does not guarantee a bright future for them to allow their children to seriously take up this sport.

As of now, most of the 14 MyKids Soccer as well as the 45 Pusat Latihan Daerah (PLD) are located in state capitals and major cities. Hence, there is a clear need for a centre of excellence under the NFDP to be established in every district in Malaysia, so that nothing constricts talents selected from getting nurtured further before reaching their full potential. Under the NFDP, the suggested improvements are as follows: 1. AKADEMI TUNAS (SEVEN TO 12 YEARS OLD) a. Under the NFDP, MyKids Soccer will be rebranded as Akademi Tunas . b. Increase in the number of centres: Added in stages; from the existing total of 14 (1 in each state) to 150 by 2020 (one in each district/parliamentary constituency). c. At least one Chinese Primary School (SRJKC) and one Tamil Primary School (SRJKT) in each state will be selected as Akademi Tunas. TRAINING SESSION REQUIREMENTS FOR AKADEMI TUNAS KHAMIS

An Open, Sustainable And Effective Screening And Talent Scouting System Currently, the player selection process has no clear structure, with the transparency of selection and talents gone unidentified emerging as two of the main key issues. This is due to an ununiformed selection criteria. There are also instances where certain coaches do not want their players to progress to a higher level, instead are content to see them limited to representing their schools or clubs. The NFDP will upgrade and create a free, open, transparent and more systematic structure in the selection of players at training centres under the Akademi Tunas, Pusat Latihan Daerah (PLD), Sekolah Sukan Malaysia (SSM), Sekolah Sukan Negeri (SSN) and the Akademi Bola Sepak Negara Mokhtar Dahari (AMD).

1. Open selection process a.  Under the NFDP, recruitment will be held through an open selection and competitions held at all Akademi Tunas and PLD each year. A uniformed selection criteria will be applied. At the same time, feedback from coaches and the talent scouting team will be taken into account in the selection of players to be placed at the training centres. b.  Periodic assessments will be conducted to determine whether players will remain, or promoted to a higher training programme or simply dropped altogether. This concept only means that getting accepted into the NFDP channels does not promise a guaranteed spot, especially when there is a drop in performance. c.  The chance to enter these NFDP channels will remain open at all ages for young players, as long as they show excellent performances that qualify for them to be chosen. By doing this, late bloomers can still be selected and polished at training centres. For example, youngsters who are not selected to the AMD at the age of 13 can still be picked at the age of 15 if they show excellent performance, comparable or better to those currently at the academy.

2. The setting up of talent scouting teams  The NFDP will create a team of talent scouts at all levels - national, state, district and community. The team will move freely full-time in identifying talents based on their performances and potential in order to avoid any element of unfairness. The services of relevant parties such as former national players can be used for this purpose. Players selected through this scouting initiative will go through Talent ID tests to ensure they have the talent and potential required to excel in the sport.

WOMEN’S FOOTBALL It is said that teenage girls tend to excel more in futsal. This is seemingly not surprising when cultural factors and the lack of promotion of football among female students are taken into consideration. The NFDP plans to change this scenario by encouraging the participation of female students through development programmes and tournaments planned specifically for them. To achieve this goal, the NFDP intends to start a development programme for female players aged seven to 12 at the Akademi Tunas . After the age of 12, players will be chosen to be placed at five SSN and the best trainees at SSM Sabah.

PROMOTION TO ENCOURAGE PARTICIPATION AT COMMUNITY LEVEL Under the NFDP, the interest and participation of children aged 7 to 12 at grassroots level will be further boosted through community and school football programmes. In addition, announcements to parents, teachers, communities and the relevant parties will also be carried out. Among the programmes identified to be implemented under the NFDP are: 1. The Official NFDP Portal The portal aims to provide comprehensive information to the public, such as location of the training centres, number of certified trainers and nearby clubs while the status of the initiatives implemented under the NFDP will be created and updated by the NFDP Secretariat. In addition, the portal will also serve as a central database on various items such as statistics on players as well as coaches. This portal will also be the main reference tool for talent scouts, where players will be ranked according to the criteria determined by the NFDP Secretariat. It will also be a platform for football fans who want to interact with the NFDP Secretariat to express their opinion on the sport through the forums available. At the same time, football clubs in Malaysia or any other interested parties can download items such as training modules and other information related to the development of football.

2. NFDP Starter Pack This programme is one of the community programmes that is collaboratively organised by the government and private sectors, to promote the growth and increase football community programmes across the country. Under this initiative, community groups, particularly the less fortunate ones will get to start their own football clinics and include children aged seven to 12 in their respective areas with the use of the NFDP Starter Pack. This pack contains basic equipment for all registered coaches and players.

3. Promoting NFDP  To inform the public of the opportunities available and improvements that have been made, and to encourage participation in the NFDP, the programme must be given enough publicity and promotion. The NFDP Secretariat will organise programmes and activities to provide information through the most effective way and platform to reach the target groups such as the parents, teachers, community leaders and other stakeholders.

INTRODUCTION In line with the expected increase in the number of players under the NFDP, the need to provide facilities that meet the footballing standards becomes very important. Thus, under the NFDP, it is the intention of KBS in collaboration with the MOE and other stakeholders to develop a complete facility, the standards of which should be discussed and decided by the NFDP Secretariat. This is relevant in the provision of basic amenities such as football fields, which among others, must suit the climate in Malaysia so that maintenance becomes more practical and easy.

The NFDP also recommends more artificial (synthetic) turf fields to be constructed for the use of everyone in the various levels of the footballing community, while stressing the aspects of field maintenance knowledge among the groundsmen, including introducing qualification standards for this profession. In addition, the need to secure funds for the maintaining of facilities through various channels, amongst others, through cooperation with the private sector must be considered as an alternative mean. This is to ensure the football facilities provided at community level can render the best results possible.

62

Under the NFDP, the major improvements to be implemented are to increase the number of facilities at the Akademi Tunas and Pusat Latihan Daerah (PLD) in phases, each to 150 by 2020. At current time, Akademi Tunas are located in selected primary schools, while the PLD are located in selected secondary schools. However, going forward, the location of the new training centres under the NFDP will no longer be limited to schools, but will be at locations with suitable facilities or fields. For example, the NFDP also proposes existing public fields that are fit for use under the Local Authorities to be made available as football training centres.

INTRODUCTION Coaches play a vital role in any football development programme. Everything taught by these experts to get players familiar with football at a very young age will leave a deep and lasting impression on them. Therefore, it is very important for the coaching aspect to be given serious attention under the NFDP. Some issues have been raised before, including that of unqualified coaches and their lack of technical knowledge or worthy strategies. Having to manage a heavy workload and favouritism were also highlighted as a barrier in this matter. Separately, there are some qualified coaches who are not equipped to conduct training at grassroots level. At the end of 2013, there were 387 full-time and part-time coaches, including the unlicensed ones. In line with the increasing demands under the NFDP, the number of requests for qualified coaches will also increase and this should be fulfilled accordingly. Under the NFDP, a continuous education of coaches is emphasised, where they have to be exposed to the latest and constantly changing aspects in training. The NFDP will also draft a scheme to attract more football enthusiasts to get involved in football coaching at all levels, to ensure the need for coaches at all planned training centres, including the AMD will be met by 2020.

COACHES DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME Under the NFDP, a few development programmes for coaches will be implemented: RE-EDUCATION Methods to train young players in the context of development are different from adult players. This education should include things like taking the time to provide information to players, the way to communicate with their parents all the way to the knowledge of sports science. Specific training to coaches should also be held regularly and continuously. Workshops and coaching symposiums must be hosted from time to time so that the coaching knowledge is continuously updated and teaching techniques can be mastered. PERIODIC EVALUATION AND CERTIFICATION It is suggested that the minimum requirement to become an instructor at the training centres should be a ‘C’ licence from FAM or the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) or the equivalent thereof. Safety for Children certificate and other certificates that can improve the quality should also be introduced. In addition, all licenced or certified coaches are required to attend courses run by the Coach Educators before qualifying to be classified as a coach of the NFDP programme. The coach will be evaluated after two years and the second report will be sent to FAM to determine the quality.

72

COACHING PROGRAMME COORDINATION The three main stakeholders, namely KBS, MOE and FAM need to further enhance the existing cooperation to resolve any issue that arises, especially at policy level. INCREASE COACHES’ INTEREST IN SELF IMPROVEMENT With the increase of coaches and training centres, more people will have the opportunity to gain experience in the field of coaching. The basics of coaching and solid experience gained in this programme should be able to help the coaches to move on to become professional coaches. Greater promotion is also needed to attract more female coaches and those who are outside the NFDP programme track. INTERNATIONAL EXPOSURE Under the NFDP, local coaches who show high commitment and commendable performances will be given the opportunity to learn from international coaches with proven track record of conducting successful development programmes. This is to be accomplished through collaboration with relevant parties such as international football clubs.


STRATEGIC THRUST 4

USAGE OF THE PORTAL FOR COACHING Coaching Education: The NFDP portal will also publish online education materials on coaching that can be accessed and downloaded by coaches under the NFDP programme. Reporting System: The portal will also introduce an online reporting system that will be adopted by all the coaches when preparing and submitting their reports.

STRATEGIC THRUST 5

INTRODUCTION Competitions are an important aspect of development programmes for athletes because they provide competitive exposure to those involved. Looking at the requirements of the competition for the seven to nine years age group, emphasis should be given to competitions that promote the concept of ‘fun games’, whereby the competitive aspect is not given credence to, but instead focus is placed on the efforts to develop individual skills through special measures, such as the downsizing of playing fields, reducing the number of players, the shortening of match duration and increasing the number of matches in a competition. The NFDP encourages the same concept to be applied in schools and community programmes throughout the country. This is because the concept provides opportunity to grassroots level players to feel the ball more while improving self-confidence, ability and interest in the sport. The concept of regularly held small-sided games ala carnival is suitable for implementation at this stage so that these children are not put under enormous pressure with high intensity football. For age groups 10 to 17, the competition will be a weekly league contested for a long period of between six to eight months a year. This will allow the players to get exposure through 25 to 40 competitive matches each year.

IMPROVING AND DIVERSIFYING COMPETITIONS STRUCTURE UNDER NFDP In line with the addition of new talents trained via the NFDP channels, more tournaments should be organised to polish individual talents with potential. From the feedback received, the championships of past were more carnival-centric, which has limited effectiveness in developing young players. The new competition to be organised under the NFDP is looking at long-term development, and to act as the best platform in searching, polishing and shaping individuals based on the concept of DNA that will be introduced. 1.  SIRKIT LIGA KOMUNITI AKADEMI TUNAS B-7, B-8 DAN B-9 Organised to address the lack of competition for this age group. Through this circuit, Akademi Tunas in certain zones will act as hosts for organising local competitions in their communities every two or three weeks throughout the first six to eight months. This competition leans towards the concept of leisure and fun-filled (fun-games) and involves invitational teams such as schools and clubs nearby. This also provides an opportunity for the NFDP Committee to identify talents outside the NFDP programme. This league is organised by the KBS (NSC) and MOE. 2.  LIGA AKADEMI TUNAS PERINGKAT ZON B-10, B-11 DAN B-12 Held to address the lack of competition for this age group. Weekly league competitions at this stage of development are the foundation of successful development programmes in Europe, South America and North America. This league involves all the Akademi Tunas combined through specific zones, with the competition period of six to eight months. This league is organised by the KBS (NSC) and MOE. 3.  LIGA AKADEMI TUNAS PERINGKAT KEBANGSAAN B-10, B-11 DAN B-12 This league for states in Peninsular Malaysia provides an arena for the best players among all state Akademi Tunas to show their capabilities.This league-based competition will be held for six to eight months between states. For Sabah & Sarawak, due to the travelling distance factor, Akademi Tunas in certain zones act as hosts for organising local competitions in their communities on a weekly basis over a period of six to eight months. The selection of Akademi Tunas in these two states that differs in the way it is organised in Peninsular Malaysia is made due to the travelling distance factor. This league is organised by the KBS (NSC) and MOE. 4.  KARNIVAL JEMPUTAN ANTARABANGSA B-12, B-14 DAN B-16 This special invitational based carnival competition involves selected teams from all channels under the NFDP as well as invitations to international and local community clubs.

Penutup

EPILOGUE The NFDP is a long-term effort by the Government through KBS in developing football in our country. The Government’s commitment to implement the NFDP is very high and the first phase is certainly a starting point to continuous and consistent effort. The National Football Development Programme (NFDP) is expected to open a new chapter in our country’s world of football, especially for players aged seven to 17. Implementation of this plan that involves many parties with their respective and clear responsibilities, promises an effort that is more accurate and sustainable to develop the sport. All stakeholders needs to give strong support and solid commitment to ensure the talent channels created under this plan will really be able to produce more players to carry the nation’s hopes. With the advent of new a DNA that will be the backbone to development of football in the country, a development system that is more systematic and sustainable will certainly be implemented. This comprehensive approach will hopefully serve as a catalyst in making Malaysia a country that is successful in producing quality players with a distinctive style that will be the pride of all one day. Of course, with the close cooperation of all parties, the NFDP will produce a generation of versatile and complete young footballers. This will definitely boost the effort to unearth and develop young talents who will be tasked to restore the golden age of football the country once attained. With the unwavering support of the Malaysian people, national football can be lifted to a higher level by achieving success at the international level, which will definitely make everyone proud.
