Teong Kiat surprised by Misbun's decision
NATIONAL singles coach Misbun Sidek's decision to quit may have an adverse effect on the national elite squad as there is fear Lee Chong Wei might follow suit.
BAM treasurer Datuk Lim Teong Kiat, who was surprised by Misbun's decision, said that it is still early to comment on the possibility of Chong Wei joining his mentor but didn't discount the possibility.
"I was surprised to hear about the resignation and BAM will make an official statement on the issue once we had a meeting with our president (Datuk Seri Nadzmi Salleh) soon," said Teong Kiat when contacted in Alor Star yesterday.
"The decision to place (Misbun's son) Misbun Ramdan under Hendrawan could be a reason but there could be other reasons too.
"There are other coaches like Rashid Sidek and Tey Siu Bock whom Chong Wei can train with but he is comfortable with Misbun.
"We cannot do much if Chong Wei decides to follow his mentor but Chong Wei is still under National Sports Council's (NSC) payroll."
BAM high performance director Datuk James Selvaraj said the decision to send Misbun Ramdan under Hendrawan is something beyond his authority where coaching and training committee's are empowered decide on the players.
"I am supposed to co-ordinate the national players and coaches but I cannot get involved in hiring and firing them. It is a policy matter where coaching and training committee can make a decision," said Selvaraj.
"I have yet to receive an e-mail from Misbun pertaining his resignation and I can only comment once I view the his letter and have a formal discussion with him."
BAM secretary Ng Chin Chai said that Nadzmi should be able to clarify on Misbun's status after an executive meeting tomorrow. -- K.M. BOOPATHY

It is not surprising for me that Misbun is going to resign. In fact, it is pretty much expected. Now the real show has begun. We will see if BAM will back down and give in to Misbun's demand as he holds CW as ransom. Since the new setup of coaching committees last year, BAM coaches had a tough time and were being pressured to produce results. The relationship between the upper management and the coaches were not in good terms as the coaches authority has been reduced;eg sending players to tournament or choosing players to train. A lot of decisions is being made by the upper management and coaches will have to follow orders even if don't feel like it. When there is no cooperation,effective communication and understanding between the the two, the last resort for the coaches is to quit. Anyone knows that LCW is a player that BAM cannot afford to lose because he is our hope for 2012 Olympic gold contender. I believe after the "big show", nothing will be solve. Both the upper management and coaches have their own weaknesses to look upon. The upper management should be more supportive and understanding and not over pressurize the coaches.
There are reasons why BAM setup a coaching committee to monitor the coaches. For the past few years, there are coaches who had been abusing their power/authority to gain personal interest. This includes corruption & nepotism. Since the appointment of new high performance director,every decisions of the coaches have to go through the approval of the high performance director. Indirectly,these coaches feels that they can no longer simply do whatever they wish. This may be a good move but unfortunately, the coaching committees went overboard and try to impose changes that perhaps too difficult for the coaches to accept. When a coach has too much power,he abuse it. At the end of the day, pity the players.
Can anyone hold BAM by ransom? Indra Gunawan tried it, but he failed. Pak Joo Bong and Morten Frost had the same fate. I'm not sure about Misbun but personally i think if he and LCW leave, it might do good for the rest of the back up players. The upper management knew that the backup players were weak and thus, maybe they will lower down their expectation of the coaches and players. It's time to move on, the country cannot depend on LCW all the time.

sports organisations. Previously they were run mainly by ex-sportsmen with no management skills.
Certainly certain departments should have ex-players, but I think the ideal is to have ex-players with management qualifications
and experience, which is very difficult .
But it is getting out of control when other than players and pro managers there are also politicians, then it will be havoc.
Many organisations welcome politicians aboard heartily because their influence can bring in government support and money, like
someone said know-who is tops here.
I think just like some of you said, BAM is improving and moving into the era where professionals and players do the running and
it is only 6 months old,they should be allowed to do their job. Of course like everything else there is always
room for continuous improvement and the management team is also subject to evaluation.everyone has to report to someone else.
A small set-up like a small club may be well run by a coach with multiple duties but I think BAM should have
pros to manage it relieving coaches of some duties.
Like someone here said, LYB or LD may not be around, but CBA will always be around.(This is an analogy
in case someone advises to stick to the topic).

James tells Misbun , Chong Wei their services are still needed
By RAJES PAUL
KUALA LUMPUR : The Badminton Association of Malaysia ’ s ( BAM ) high performance director, Datuk James Selvaraj, had urged both Misbun Sidek and Lee Chong Wei not to stop serving in the national team .
James expressed mixed feelings yesterday over coach Misbun ’s decision to quit the team and Chong Wei ’s intention to follow suit if the BAM failed to coax his mentor to stay on.
James , who assumed the hot seat in September initially on a part- time basis , said that the timing was all wrong for Misbun .
His brother- in- law passed away on the same day he tendered the resignation letter on Dec 31 .
“ I was there at the burial ground. I am sorry that the timing was all wrong for Misbun , ” said James .
“ It is a very sad period for him . I think it is not fair for anyone to make any conclusion and speculation on Misbun’ s resignation .
“ I spoke to him and I know that a lot of things led to his resignation. He is hurt .
“ He is a good person and a coach . But as a player he made his own mistakes before . At the BAM , we are looking into ways to strengthen our programmes.
“ At the cemetery , Misbun told me that I could help him .
“ I am ready to do so and we have made arrangements to meet each other . ”
As for Chong Wei, James hoped that the world No . 1 would stay focused on his mission to win bigger honours for the country.
Chong Wei has thrown his support behind Misbun, who broke down when he told his charge of the decision to leave after a training session on the eve of his official resignation on Dec 31 .
Chong Wei had made it clear that he would leave the BAM set - up if it meant continuing to train under the guidance of Misbun.
“ I hope Chong Wei will put in a lot of thought before making any decision .
“ He risks losing a lot of benefits if he goes on his own, ” said James.
“ Chong Wei has won many titles over the last two years .
“ That is fantastic . But we are also here to support him in winning the major ones . “ Misbun is in his own battle and I hope Chong Wei will continue to work on his mission to become a world and Olympic champion .
“ For now , they must understand that the country needs their services . We will let our president ( Datuk Seri Nadzmi Mohd Salleh ) get to the root of the problem . ”
Chong Wei is currently in Taipeh for the Super Series Masters Finals. He opens his defence of the title tomorrow.
why chong wei is on misbun side?
i thought he make it public he also kena* ..lol
(*also got the pressure)
