The Football Association of Singapore (FAS) has appointed former national skipper Aide Iskandar as the head coach of the Republic's Under-23 side.
This comes after V Sundramoorthy resigned as coach of both Malaysian Super League champions the LionsXII and the U-23 side that will go to the South-east Asia (SEA) Games in Myanmar in December.
Aide will work hand in hand with national coach Bernd Stange.
Said Stange: "I'm not an adviser, I'm the national coach and in charge of all national teams.
"That means I will be responsible for the SEA Games preparations with Aide, who is the head coach of this team."
Aide, a former Singapore central defender and captain who won a bronze medal in the three editions of the Games he played in between 1995 and 1999, is looking forward to the challenge.
"I'm honoured and humbled by this appointment," he said.
