Who is the most successful local coach?

Shimaaz Ali 18 February 2017 - 16:25

When you ask about the most successful local coach in Maldives football, the first three names will be Abdul Jaleel (Abujee), Mauroof Ahmed (Maattey) and Ali Suzain.

The reason for those names relies on the successful years they had spent in Maldives football. These three coaches won 33 top flight titles combined. The most successful coach in Victory Sports Club's history, Mauroof Ahmed won 13 titles and Ali Suzain won 11 titles. Abdul Jaleel won 9 titles with the days he spent with Victory.

Maattey won those 13 titles with Victory, Valencia and IFC and Suzain won the titles with Victory and Maziya Sports and Recreation Club.

Maattey won 11 titles with Victory and one each with Valencia and IFC. Maattey won national tournament 5 times and Abujee won the prestigious national tournament 7 times and Suzain won it 4 times  

The other local coaches who has won the top flight titles include Mohamed Shiyaz (Mohan) and Moosa Manik (Kuda Moosa). Both of them won two titles each. And Mohamed Iqbal, Ihsan Abdul Ghani, Ahmed Saleem (Bodu Heena), Ahmed Niyaz (Niyaa), Ahmed Mujthaba (Fesco), Ismail Mahfooz (Imma) and  Abdul Hameed Abdul Gafoor (Addo) managed to win just one title.

Abujee and Mattey are not actively involved with any club at this time, Ali Suzain has the chance of becoming the most successful local coach as he has signed a new one year contract with his former club, Victory.

I haven't seen Maattey's coaching tactics but luckily I have seen suzain in several occassions. According to me he should and is the best ever local coach not because of his winning mentality and commitment but also his great discipline. Most of us might disagree with me because suzain has been widely regarded as arrogant and selfish but I haven't seen him having a violent contact with his rival fans. Subsequently Suzain is the only coach who loves the competition from Maldivian King New Radiant and no one had such a good track record against them except him. Moreover his ability to motivate players even in the difficult situation is also a plus point. Not to mention his ability to convert small team into big ones. He makes Thinadhoo FC one of the most fearsome club excepts Male teams.
