Raging coach Misbun chases Kwong Beng out of training centre
By RAJES PAUL
KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia’s singles coach Misbun Sidek was in a foul mood at Stadium Juara in Bukit Kiara yesterday.
And he had two good reasons for it.
Firstly, he was annoyed that Lee Chong Wei’s status as the world No. 1 had been belittled by many – especially after the shuttler’s failure to live up to his top billing at the World Championships in Hyderabad last month.
Secondly, he was furious with the lack of commitment shown by Chong Wei’s sparring partner, Chan Kwong Beng yesterday. Misbun even chased Kwong Beng out of the training centre – for two hours.
Driving Misbun mad: Chan Kwong Beng was chased out of the training centre by the coach on Friday.
Misbun said he was sympathetic with Chong Wei for having to take the brickbats thrown at him since his infamous defeat to Sony Dwi Kuncoro of Indonesia in the quarter-finals of the world meet.
“No other Malaysian shuttler has maintained his world No. 1 status as long as Chong Wei has. That itself is an achievement,” said Misbun.
”He may not have won the world title but can anyone take his place now?
“In fact, he has narrowed the gap on three-time world champion Lin Dan of China since becoming the world No. 1.
“In the past, Chong Wei used to lose three to four matches before stealing one from the Chinese. But in the last one year, they have taken turns beating each other.
“Chong Wei works hard in training and takes everything that I throw at him. I will not be surprised if he is still the world No. 1 in the next two years or even until the next Olympic Games (2012) but with a better mentality of handling pressure and distraction from within.”
Misbun said that Chong Wei had handled himself well despite so many distractions since attaining superstar status.
“He is a popular figure now, there is money, big cars and other distractions, including attention from girls. But what does Chong Wei do? He trains. He talks only about badminton,” said Misbun.
“Chong Wei was crushed after the world meet debacle but he hauled himself up and went on to win the Macau Open title without dropping a single game.”
As for Kwong Beng, Misbun said: “I have high hopes of him becoming a top player one day. But I do not know when is he going to become like Chong Wei if he cannot focus on training.
“I blew my top because he has disappointed me again today and, hopefully, all the scolding will help him to change for the better.
“He stands to benefit the most by sparring with Chong Wei but he does not seem to understand that. I hope he will not make me give up on him completely.”

Today, Misbun Sidek was quoted as saying that the Malaysian young shuttlers should be provided with sports psychologists to get them focussed on their badminton.
He should also insist that their mobile phones be switched off during their training sessions.
These shuttlers are really fortunate to have been selected to play for Malaysia. They should thank their lucky stars that they are not in the shoes of Nguyen Tien Minh. NTM knew hardship and he only got pittance. It was only recently that he got sponsorships and endorsements and won title prize monies. His motivation was his love for badminton and his ambition to be a major force in the sport.
Misbun and Rashid Sidek must strictly enforce discipline and drop the ‘so-so’ shuttlers as otherwise the rot will persist.

Chong Wei urges Kwong Beng to thrive on Misbun’s harsh treatment
By RAJES PAUL
PETALING JAYA: The fasting month teaches perseverance.
And world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei has challenged younger compatriot Chan Kwong Beng to persevere in tough training sessions to help him become a world-class player.
The 22-year-old Kwong Beng was reduced to tears last week after receiving a tongue lashing from coach Misbun Sidek for showing a lack of commitment in training. Misbun had chased Kwong Beng out of the training session for two hours.
Feeling down: Chan Kwong Beng was reduced to tears by coach Misbun Sidek’s tongue lashing last week.
Chong Wei hoped that Kwong Beng would show better attitude in training after experiencing the harsh treatment from Misbun.
“What Kwong Beng went through is nothing new. I have seen Misbun being angry like this almost four years ago,” said the 27-year-old Chong Wei.
“In fact, I had experienced this when I was younger. Misbun threw me out of training for a week because I took it easy in training.
“So I can understand how Kwong Beng felt. But he should not give up. He should take Misbun’s stern warnings on a positive note.”
Chong Wei added that he had seen improvement in Kwong Beng since they began sparring against each other this year.
At the Macau Open last month, Kwong Beng chalked up his career best win, beating Hong Kong’s Ng Wei in the third round.
“Kwong Beng has provided me with quality sparring sessions together with another back-up player, Lok Chong Chieh. I believe Kwong Beng has a good future,” said Chong Wei.
“But he will not make it if he does not show the desire to improve. He has to change his attitude and not play well only when he feels like it. There is no easy way to success.
“I became the Malaysian champion when I was 22. He is fortunate that Misbun has faith in him and chosen him to spar and train with me on a full-time basis.
“I am willing to part my knowledge and experience to him but it is his loss if he does not make good use of this opportunity.”
Kwong Beng is now ranked 88th in the world and he has yet to win an Open title.
The other players in the back-up squad include Tan Chun Seang, Chong Wei Feng, Liew Daren and Mohd Arif Abdul Latif. But they come under the charge of Indonesia’s former world champion Hendrawan.
