Soccer60 Podcast Episode 4: Keshika Subbarao
This week, we talk to Coach Keshika Subbarao about working across different football sectors and being a female coach in a male-dominated industry.
Writing about football from a young age, Kesh completed a law degree in the UK before deciding to commit to the world of football. Earning her coaching and scouting badges in England, she then returned to Malaysia where she began coaching for charitable projects in the Klang Valley.
Now working with Little League Soccer and FC Kuala Lumpur, she talks about how she’s perceived as a female coach, how she deals with leading FCKL’s older groups, and what she hopes to achieve in football.
Meet the Hosts
Soccer60 is hosted every week by Henry Choo and Andy Johnston. With Little League Soccer from almost the very beginning, Andy started as a coach with the company and has overseen the academy’s growth to 4 training centres across the Klang Valley and the introduction of the FC Kuala Lumpur elite programme.
Now managing director of Little League Soccer Malaysia, Andy is a former youth player for Southampton FC and has been coaching professionally for almost 20 years.
In Soccer60, Andy will provide insight into Little League’s ongoing projects, future ideas and coaching philiosophies while also quizzing guests on their coaching history and what makes them tick.
Soccer60 is anchored by Little League Soccer marketing manager and part-time stand-up comedian Henry Choo. Holding a bachelors degree in Mass Communication from the University of Hereford, Henry is in charge of much of the media produced by Little League and FC Kuala Lumpur.
As comfortable behind the mic as anyone, Henry will bring his sense of humour to the show in an attempt to draw the best stories, experiences and opinions from each week’s special guests.
