SS Dhaliwal in his blog had indicated that the Deputy President of MHF had stated that the former Malaysian international Maninderjit Singh or otherwise known as Mike is to become General Manager of MHF. Apparently it is all a formality of awaiting NSC's approval. It was also stated that he is to report on 1st July 2009.
Although rumours did exist prior to SS Dhaliwal's story on it but the comment of the MHF Deputy President seem to further confirm the rumour. I wonder why there is no official news release from MHF on such an appointment. Is this another one of the statements of the Deputy President which is just a spontaneous reaction. Many things have had happened in the past and sometimes it is difficult to comprehend the Deputy President's reactions whether that is MHF's official position.
I have no doubt that SS Dhaliwal is just as excited as anyone of us but until there is an official communique from MHF, it may be premature to extend a formal congratulations to Mike.
After all, "there have been many a slips between the cup and the lips" and therefore it may be wise to wait for an official announcement.
