Global set to unveil new coach

Global FC is set to unveil a new member of its family.
 
Underlining its seriousness to enhance its status as a premier Filipino football club, Global will be tapping Scottish manager Brian Reid to handle the team starting this month.
 
Global has never had a coach in the caliber of Reid, who had a credible playing career before taking up a managerial role with Ayr United in Scotland.
 
The 42-year-old Reid had stints in the Scottish Premier League with Rangers, before managing Ayr United, which he helped secure to promotion to the first division during a five-year spell until last year.
 
“His experience will give the club a lot of confidence,” Global boss Dan Palami said of Reid, a centerback during his playing days.
 
Reid is scheduled to arrive in the country next week and link up with the squad, which is now preparing for the Smart Club Championships this month.
 
Reid’s first game in charge will possibly be in the first round of the competition when Global plays Nomads on Jan. 13 at the Rizal Memorial
Stadium.
 
Global has been without a coach since Edwin Cabalida took a leave from the team late last year.
 
Palami took over on an interim basis and successfully piloted the side to the finals of the Cup.
