MALAYSIA’S top men’s doubles shuttlers Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong will have to take a long and hard look at themselves following their miserable outing in the Sudirman Cup.

Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) Coaching and Training committee chairman Ng Chin Chai said that he had spent an hour with the players and coaches in the dressing room after Kien Keat-Boon Heong’s loss to Lee Sheng-mu-Tsai Chia-hsin in the Group C tie against Taiwan on Sunday.

Chin Chai said that there were several factors which contributed to their defeat but “I told them it all depends on them now”.

An immediate change in attitude should see them get back on track for the World Championships in Guangzhou in August.

“It’s not right to single out one person for the team’s defeat but I have to admit that Koo-Tan did not perform well. There could be several factors,” said Chin Chai.

“I spoke to them and asked them to check themselves and to be sincere. Yes, BAM are responsible but the players must also ask themselves if they are sleeping early, coming for training regularly and training diligently.

“I also told them that if they are gambling, it will eventually affect them emotionally.”

Chin Chai said that he would propose during the post-mortem for BAM to come out with clear guidelines on the do’s and don’ts for all the players.
