KUALA LUMPUR: The Bos Gaurus are not out of the woods yet. On Tuesday, Perak’s winless run extended to three matches after a 5-0 thrashing by Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) in Ipoh.
Though JDT had plenty of top strikers, they didn’t have to work for the first goal.
Perak got it for JDT instead, scoring an own goal in the fifth minute though Hasnul Zaim Zafri.
Then JDT took over, scoring through Leandro Velazquez (25th minute penalty, 90th+1), Diogo Santo (45th) and Bergson Da Silva (65th).
The goals galore aside, there was a side show which saw Perak coach Lim Teong Kim yellow carded by referee S. Logeswaran following a heated verbal exchange with JDT’s Arif Aiman Hanapi on the pitch side.
Teong Kim, a former Bayern Munich youth coach, was upset that a foul on Perak’s South Korean forward Seo Seo Nung went unpunished.
At a post-match interview, Teong Kim said: “If I tell honestly, I’ll be suspended, so I better not say honestly.
“We know from the beginning that JDT are a strong team. The players have been told how to play, but yet we made silly mistakes and they scored.
“But I guess it’s a matter of quality we are talking about. For me losing 5-0 is a big score, even 3-0 is a big score. When I was playing football, I never lost by big score in the local league… for me, it’s difficult to swallow.
“People can say we lose 10 or maybe 15 (goals), but it doesn’t bother me at all. What’s most important is how we play.
“Anyone if the media or netizens talk, they can talk.”
Teong Kim joked that he probably would have to play in Perak’s next match due to Seo Nung’s injury.
“You saw it yourself. How is it not even a card, how can I accept this? I just ask for a fair game, that’s all. Come here and please give a fair game.
“No foul? I’m asking you, should it be a foul? If you were a referee, what would you give if it’s a foul?
“I’m asking you (the media). You ask me all the time and now I ask you, all of you saw the game
“We need someone to do something, so that both sides get justice. That’s all we ask.”
