KUALA LUMPUR: Terengganu striker Abdul Hadi Yahya wants to avoid the attention the team have been getting.
He wants to focus solely on regaining his form and confidence that saw him win the Golden Boot last year.
The Turtles have been in the media spotlight, mostly for wrong reasons, due to their poor form which led to coach Mat Zan Mat Aris being told to take a two-week break by the State FA.
While Terengganu have denied they were looking for a new coach, they have been approached by several prospective candidates.
Former Kelantan coach Peter Butler is one of them.
"I just want to focus on myself and how I can help the team. Other matters are not my problem, they are for the FA and team management to deal with.
"We have an important AFC Cup game tomorrow (today) and I hope all the players can just focus on that instead of worrying about who is going to be coach," said Abdul Hadi.
Terengganu, having already qualified for the knockout rounds of the AFC Cup, play Kitchee of Hong Kong today to decide the group champion.
The Hong Kong Div 1 champions Kitchee currently head the group. They had earlier beaten Terengganu 2-0 in Kuala Terengganu.
"On current form, we're not expected to create an upset. We need to keep our heads up and believe in ourselves," he added.
Meanwhile, Kelantan hold a three-point lead at the top of Group H and only need a draw at home against Ayeyawady United to seal top spot. A defeat for the east coast side could see them fall behind Ayeyawady and possibly miss out on the knockout rounds altogether if Navibank Saigon win their final match against Arema Indonesia.
Such a scenario would see Kelantan, Ayeyawady and Navibank finish level on 10 points but the teams from Myanmar and Vietnam hold the edge based on head-to-head record.
