The German is confident his team will be stronger by the time 2013 is out.
Singapore head coach Bernd Stange says his main objective for the rest of the year is to revitalise the squad.
Much like under previous coach Rajodko Avramovich, the 65-year-old German has been limited to continually using the same players and has taken it upon himself to inject some new blood into the team.
Stange wants to have several players of the same high-cailber in every position but admits there is still plenty of hard work to be done if he’s going to achieve that ahead of the AFC Asian Cup qualifiers.
“We are coming closer to having at least three players for each position; even if important players like Shaiful (Esah) and Shakir (Hamzah) are missing, we now have Hafiz (Sujad) and Zulfadli (Zainal),” he explained to Goal Singapore.
“This should be for every position and every player should know what he has to do in his position.
“We are not ready [yet] but at the end of the year, after the matches with Syria and Jordan (in the AFC Asian Cup qualifiers), we will have a powerful team.
“First we do not have adequate substitutes in all position on the same level [now], meaning we have to identify more players, even if [it means] we go down to the Prime League to find them.”
