    Peter Gade:putting my whole love and efforts into French Badminton

    "I have done all that I could as a player. Now, I am doing all I can as a coach. I love this. I will never get tired of badminton.There are several French players in the world’s top 50. I hope we will have a few in the top 10 in the future, but it will take years.I want to put the right structures in place in France. A lot of changes have to take place, but the players here are very open and committed and that's all that I can hope for.”

    Other than coaching, Peter Gade has also been keeping himself busy with promotional works with Lin Dan of China, Malaysia's Lee Chong Wei and Indonesia's Taufik Hidayat.

    All four will take part in an exhibition match in Jakarta on Aug 17.


    "It's just great to hang out with these guys. It’s important that the big stars of the game promote the sport. I don’t know what will happen when Chong Wei and Lin Dan leave after the next Olympic Games(Gives us a good hint about the duo's retirement plan). We need stars to keep the interest in the sport alive and reach out to a bigger audience".

    "Only Chen Long of China has been consistent now. I hope others like Jan O Jorgensen, K. Srikanth, Kento Momota and Tommy Sugiarto will step up."

    Peter Gade is leaving French badminton next year May 1st. Wonder what he has in mind. Coach in HK? Coach in Malaysia? Coach in India?

    Perhaps MAS, because they are short of a Dane?

    Paris just got the Olympics for 2024. In view of that event, the French badminton federation wants to increase its effort to produce competitive professional badminton.
    Until now, as I understand from the brief interview Gade gave this week (http://www.ffbad.org/actus-19/2017/depart-de-peter-gade-et-jesper-hovgaard) Made and fellow coach Hovgaard were only devoting half of their time to the French federation, going back to Denmark for other activities the rest of the time.
    The French federation wanted him to be full time but Gave could not do it. I regret it! I hope the French federation will find someone with similar qualification.
    There might have been a salary issue.

    In the French federation website, they say the collaboration was ended on mutual agreement. So perhaps the contract was not formally over.
