KUALA LUMPUR:  Datuk Misbun Sidek turned down The Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM)’s offer to be the Chief Director for its national team due to personal reasons. Misbun Sidek says no to BAM
BAM was forced to switch to Plan B, which they appointed Rashid Sidek, as the singles chief coach on Thursday and will name the chief for doubles soon. BAM president Tan Sri Tengku Mahaleel Tengku Ariff said they have not yet decided if Kim Hock will be their pick to head the doubles department.   “We will now go back to our Plan B and appoint two chief coaches – one in the singles and one in the doubles.”


Mahaleel, admitted that a lack of discipline was one of the key contributors to the dearth of quality players, such as world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei. “Malaysia had a strong badminton team during 1988-1966, because those coaches we hired from China knew how to discipline players with coaching. I have to admit that we lack that now ... but we will look into ways to instil discipline.”
