KUALA LUMPUR: All hopes will be on the youngest Sidek brother — Rashid — to overcome the lack of quality men’s singles players in the national team.
And Rashid is determined to take up the challenge and add more depth to the squad.
His plan is to start afresh next year. He will start by giving more focus to the second echelon of national players to close the gap on the country’s top player Lee Chong Wei.
On Friday, the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) named Rashid and Rexy Mainaky as the head coaches of the men’s singles and doubles departments respectively.
