MANILA, Philippines – Former Azkals coach Simon McMenemy lashed out at his ex-wards,after the Philippine Football Federation (PFF) reportedly failed to ship his “possessions” back to him.

McMenemy, who coached the national booters in their ASEAN Football Federation Suzuki Cup stint last year, vented on Twitter regarding the late delivery of his possessions.

“How difficult is it to forward someone's possessions? Was promised 4 months ago that they were sent. Azkals really letting me down,” he tweeted.

McMenemy, however, was apparently informed that his things will be returned sooner.

“Right, tomorrow I regain some of my possessions. Azkals better pull their finger out. Ruining my time there,” he said.

Meanwhile, Azkals team manager Dan Palami said actions have already been taken regarding McMenemy’s request.

“I have been informed that he asked that his stuff be shipped to Vietnam,” Palami told

“All I know is that in January (the staff) already had his things inventoried and packed, and already gave the money for the shipping costs,” he added.

Palami, however, interpreted the incident as a "slight misunderstanding that will certainly be resolved  in time."

McMenemey has been putting on a sour face after his coaching contract with the Azkals expired last December 31.

Feeling “disrespected,” the British coach ranted online on the PFF’s supposed failure to relay that he will no longer be coaching the team.

“No call, email, text, nothing. Been told by a friend who watched it on TV, this is not how to treat people,” he had tweeted.

The Azkals hired Hans Michael Weiss of Germany early this year to replace McMenemy.
