Welcome to the club, Karim

(the namecard of former Woodlands's coach Karim Bencherifa)

Moroccan coach Karim Bencherifa had parted way with the struggling northern giants Woodlands Wellington.

It was the second time that Bencherifa left Singapore.

Back in the midst of the 2004 season, he came in as a "trouble-shooter" for the now- sit out club Tanjong Pagar United, in which he did fairly well to revitalise the club though it was beyond his control when the Jaguars decided to sit out.

He came in again mid last season , this time to the Woodlands stadium, not only he guided the Rams to the third position of the league standing and also to the final of Singapore Cup final.

Unfortunately though, Good thing never last as the Rams struggled to repeat its form and struggled to this day.

Interestingly, the Moroccan coach had just joined the club what could be known as the "troubleshooter" club.

Rewind your memories back and look at how coaches like Jang Jung and Chow Kwai Lam, who took over at Balestier and Tampines Rovers few seasons ago.

All three of them came in during the midst of the season and left in the middle of next.

Is there a curse or something like that whenever a "trouble-shooter" come in to pick up the mess and failed to put the house in order when given his own?
