Yoo’s sudden departure leaves Kim Her in the lurch
JOHOR BARU: If he was disappointed, national doubles chief coach Tan Kim Her did not show it.
Instead, he was quite composed although the man – two-time Olympic silver medallist Yoo Yong-sung of South Korea – he had recommended for the job had turned his back on coaching the national men’s doubles shuttlers.
Kim Her, however, admitted that the sudden departure of the Korean leaves him in urgent need of help to coach the 10 doubles pairs under his care.
On Saturday, the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) secretary Ng Chin Chai confirmed that Yong-sung resigned despite the national body extending his contract following the end of the six-month probation period.
Yong-sung quit because he did not get the increase in salary he wanted.
Yong-sung was engaged in November for one main reason – to give some Korean input to the Olympic-bound Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong, who were struggling to beat South Korea’s Ko Sung-hyun-Yoo Yeon-seong.
But he ended up coaching the back-up shuttlers while Kien Keat-Boon Heong finally beat the Korean pair for the first time in seven meetings at the Thomas Cup qualifying round in February under Kim Her’s guidance.
Kim Her said he would get the help of women’s doubles coach Chong Kien Ling as a temporary measure. Kien Ling is an assistant to Rosman Razak and Jeremy Gan.
“For now, it is only Pang (Cheh Chang) and me coaching the men’s doubles and we have a large number of players to cope with. Our focus now is on the players for the Thomas Cup Finals and Olympic Games and we have asked Kien Ling to help out,” said Kim Her.
“The review of contract and salary was between the management and Yong-sung and I don’t know what went on.
“Yes, we took him on to help Koo and Tan but language was a problem and he decided to focus on back-up players from the start.”
Asked whether he had anyone in mind as replacement or whether he would consider former international Razif Sidek, Kim Her said: “It isn’t up to me to decide.
“I can’t simply ask for Li Yongbo (of China) or anyone else to come in and take over.”
The pairs under Kim Her’s purview are Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong, Lim Khim Wah-Goh V Shem, Hoon Thien How-Tan Wee Kiong, Chooi Kah Ming-Ow Yao Han, Nelson Heg Wei Keat-Teo Ee Yi, Mak Hee Chun-Teo Kok Siang, Vountus Indra Mawan-Mohd Lutfi Zaim Abdul Khalid, Shen Low Juan-Tan Yip Jiun, Yew Hong Kheng-Jagdish Singh, Tan Wee Tan-Sant Enos Jani and two state players under a one-month trial — Goh Jian Hao-Tan Chee Tean.
Yong-sung is the second prominent coach to resign after Rexy Mainaky of Indonesia, who left last month to take up a job in the Philippines.

And so, Yong-sung decided, all on his own, to focus on the back-up players! So is it safe to assume then, that the back-up players speak Korean?
So, a highly-qualified international coach is signed on but no one "understands" his language so he is relegated to training the back-up players who magically understand him just fine (or hell, it doesn't matter to TKH or NCC or Bata or anyone if they understand him or not) but no one thought of employing a qualified interpreter after already having made such a strategic decision for their best OG hopes.
Just what we've come to expect of BAM. A web of half-truths, untruths, and pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey games.

it's time to hire the local one instead of foreigner...
can't hire back some former/ex double players like Cheah Soon Kit, Lee Wan Wah, Razif Sidek, Chew Choon Eng, etc...
Yap Kim Hock sure guarantee not going back to BAM as he's super happy with BJSS (because of AJC/WJC successes)...

As for waiting for the people from BAM to inform us, isn't that just what TKH did? But yes, you're right; I look forward to some more enlightening information from the others in BAM!
