Thread: Rexy Mainaky as Coach

If only Phillipines can afford a MS coach like Hendrawan or to bring in one of the top CHN coach like a Li Miao, it will be a go. If Rexy can coach TBH-KKK from scratch to SE, AG and AE titles, and brought Vivien and her partner, and CEH-WPT from injury back to qualify for OLY12 within 1 year, with the full control PBA in their wisdom), given him, there is a lot of positives in Phillipines. I think Rexy needs more than 2 years to do this thingie.

Hmm, according to what Rexy told the Msian press, it's not USD12,000, Russia offered that. Philipines, should be less. Dont think BAM paid that high either.
But Rexy's passion for baddy, as player & coach is indeniable. From England OG silver medalist to Msia AG, AE champs & everything in between, he made it happen.
Uncle OTB, 2 years hard lah. Did you watch the Axiata Cup? If those players are the current national players, 4 years is more realistic. 1st target, SEA Games medal

So what triggered Rexy’s sudden departure?
In The Sport-Light
By RAJES PAUL
PETALING JAYA: The timing of Rexy Mainaky’s departure from the national team last week caught many by surprise.
It had been expected immediately after Rexy was demoted and put in charge of the women’s doubles players last September when his blue-eyed boys Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong demanded a change of coaches.
The 44-year-old former Olympic and world champion, however, swallowed his pride and took up the challenge and did quite well to guide Chin Eei Hui-Wong Pei Tty and Vivian Hoo-Woon Khe Wei into the world top 20.
Rexy, who holds Malaysian permanent residence (PR), declared that this country was his second home and even contemplated setting up his own badminton academy here when his job of guiding Pei Tty-Eei Hui was done.
So the sudden change of heart and urgency came as a surprise when Rexy dropped the bombshell last Thursday, saying he was leaving Malaysia to coach the Philippines.
He was not expected to go — at least not until after London and especially not in the midst of Eei Hui-Pei Tty’s fight for survival in their qualification for their third Olympics.
So why the hurry? What triggered Rexy to even leave his wife and children behind in Malaysia to take up the challenge in the Philippines? Who, or what, pushed him so far that he took off faster than Usain Bolt?
Why risk being branded as a coach willing to leave his players in the lurch?
More interestingly, why didn’t the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) stop him or even delay his resignation for another two months? There was no emergency meeting nor any official pressing the panic button like when Misbun Sidek quit more than a year ago.
In fact, the decision, nobody seems to know by whom, to accept Rexy’s resignation was conveyed to the council members via email.
BAM’s decision to take Rexy’s resignation lightly must have crushed the man.
Who would not after all the sacrifices that he had made, even though his coaching calibre was challenged following the decline of 2006 Asian Games and 2007 All-England champions Kien Keat-Boon Heong.
Did Rexy fail to do his job or did the players not help themselves?
It will not be wrong to say that Rexy’s uneasiness began with BAM accommodating Kien Keat-Boon Heong’s request to train under Pang Cheh Chang after the failure at the World Championships last August and with the promotion of Tan Kim Her as the men’s doubles chief coach.
The sudden shift in the roles and responsibilities broke the harmonious relationship among the coaches.
A jovial Rexy resorted to working on his own, without having much communication with the other coaches during training session — at least not like before.
Are there cliques among the coaches? Is there back-biting and intrigue? How united are the coaches? Are they too preoccupied with personal agendas and politics? Are the players drawn into this game as well and forced to choose sides in order to survive and win selection for international tournaments?
So many questions and so few answers. Whatever it is, they could go a long way towards answering why the national players are not faring well in international competition.
Clearly, there are too many cooks in the BAM kitchen and it is anybody’s guess who is playing Gordon Ramsay(.)
One thing is clear, Rexy’s resignation highlights the need for a supremo to handle all aspects of coaching. There are more than 20 coaches in the national set-up whose salaries add up to more than RM200,000 a month.
They must be constantly monitored to see that they do their jobs well, sans the politics and manipulations rife in Malaysian sports.
BAM will review and make plans for their next Olympic cycle after the London Games. Looking at how fragile the coaching system is right now, a major change is inevitable.

It's a fact that not a single good coach can survive with BAM. From Fang Kai Xiang, Yang Yang, Han Jian, Chen Chang Jie, chen kang n chen hong yong, morten frost, indra gunawan, park joo bong, li mao,Misbun sidek .... now rexy is added to the list . What's the problem with BAM? I respect some of the coaches who were outspoken and criticized the problems within the structure of BAM, be it on the coaching side or management side. None of them were being heard. Ignorance because of arrogance . VIP Officials don't think the problem lies with the BAM. As an organization, if the employee cannot deliver they got to be axed..why? Because they are highly paid so they must deliver, if they can't , they have to go. These people who control BAM are not player, and they can never understand the responsibility and passion of a coach towards the game. They coach whole-heartedly but when there is no result, they are being treated like nobody. The last resort of these former world champions and olympic champions to save their pride and dignity is to quit. It is not worth it....except for the money. Although the offer of coaching salary is high but for these coaches it is not the joy and satisfaction that they are looking for.
