Kuala Lumpur: Former Malaysian national coach Razif Sidek was unhappy and slammed the irresponsible attitude of President of the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM), Tan Sri Tengku Mahaleel Tengku Ariff who pointed fingers at the coach following poor performance of men's singles, Daren Liew at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow two weeks ago.

According to Razif, if Mahaleel did not dare to take responsibility when facing criticism, he should resign from his current position because such attitude was shameful to the organization.

 

"Why did he (Mahaleel) wanted to fight with Rashid and blame the coach for the loss? If BAM felt Daren were not at his best at the time, why did they still allow Daren to go to Glasgow? BAM officials have the ultimate power to finalize the roster," said Razif.

 

"As a leader, he shouldn't undermine the efforts of the coaches. Don't just take credit when the team wins, but lays the blame on others when things go wrong," added Razif.

 

BadmintonPlanet.com hopes BAM can clean up this mess as soon a possible, and work with the coaches to revive the ailing men's singles department.
