RAZIF Sidek and Cheah Soon Kit are impressed with the BA of Malaysia (BAM) and are willing to devote their time to helping talent management group (TMG) director Tan Aik Mong make Malaysia a world badminton power again.
Razif has been included in the assessment team of former internationals to assist Aik Mong evaluate the performance of coaches and players. They are likely to have a meeting today.
BAM president Tengku Mahaleel Tengku Ariff, after announcing the new five-year plan during the council meeting on Saturday, also mentioned that Soon Kit is another former international that should be in the assessment team while Lee Chong Wei is the only current national player included.
Razif said although the talent management group consists of the entire programme from the national senior squad right down to grassroots development at state level, it is a good idea that it comes under the supervision of one person.
"The changes are positive and I believe there is hope if everyone can work towards the goal of nurturing Malaysia into a world class badminton nation again," said Razif.
