    BAM insist money a key reason for Yoo’s resignation

    KUALA LUMPUR: The Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) are adamant that South Korean coach Yoo Yong-sung resigned over money matters, among other things.
    BAM insisted, in a press release yesterday, that besides exploring Yong-sung’s role and position in the team, they had also discussed a higher salary in a series of meetings.
    On Wednesday, Yong-sung lambasted BAM for saying that he had resigned because his request for more money was turned down. The two-time Olympic silver medallists said he had quit because he was unhappy with BAM for not putting him in charge of a fixed group of players and not over salary issues.
    Yesterday, BAM general manager Kenny Goh came to the association’s defence, setting out the chronology of events that led to Yong-sung’s resignation.
    “There was no vacancy in BAM when Yong-sung approached us for a coaching job last October.
    “We learnt that he planned to send his children to study in Malaysia,” said Kenny.
    “With his credentials as a player, we thought it would be good to try him out as a coach in our set-up. We even assisted him in enrolling his children in an international school in Kuala Lumpur.”
    Kenny said Yong-sung was offered a coaching post from November 2011, with a six-month probation, after several discussions. It is learnt that his salary was US$3,000 per month.
    “He was to coach the men’s doubles under chief coach Tan Kim Her, with a plan to help the juniors. He was also asked to improve on his English so that he could communicate better with the players,” said Kenny.
    “He’s still not fluent in English. In fact, he may not have understood some of the things we said and we may not have understood him.”
    Kenny said Yong-sung first met BAM secretary Ng Chin Chai and him in March to air his grouses.
    “He requested for a higher salary and to have fixed players to train. Kim Her then met up with the doubles coaches, including Yong-sung, and decided to assign players to each coach,” said Kenny.
    “On April 24, we met Yong-sung and he again repeated his requests. He wanted three times his present salary.
    “We told him we would have to bring it up at the exco meeting on April 27.”
    At that time he was working with three pairs – Mak Hee Chun-Teo Kok Siang, Chooi Kah Ming-Ow Yao Han and Tan Wee Tat-Sant Enos.
    Kenny said that when the BAM exco decided to confirm him, after the six-month probation, without any increment, the Korean resigned.
    “We have followed the proper procedure. We are sure that Yong-sung has the quality to be a good coach and his six-month stint with the BAM has indeed helped our players. We want to thank him for his contribution and services,” said Kenny.

    I am confused.

    It was thought that YYS was brought in by BAM to help KKK/TBH at the coming 2012 Olympic Games.

    Now, I have found that it's not.

    That is MALAYSIA. Maybe BAM should handled by all ex-players who used to serve MAS in badminton event? because only experienced players knows what is the best for newbies.

    Nadzmi should be replaced with Misbun..... :P :P :P

    Another one from Metro, additional part :

    Uncle OTB, YYS is Korean people , hardworking one. He wouldnt be able to stand the Bolehland style. Plus, here he no say, in Korea, coach have final say on the players, not management
    That is why I said this Yoo chap is not smart, in Bolehland he has to learn to play yes-man, if he plays no-man, that does not cut it, so he has a short career. Maybe we can forgive him since he does not know MAS culture well, we line our pockets first before even remotely thinking of doing what's good for the country. Kennedy said 'ask not what the country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country', except in MAS, we do the opposite 'do it for ourselves first, screw the country or the tax-payers'
    Learn from Guru Rashid, do little or none at all, keep quiet (actually Rashid does a great job keeping his mouth shut watching from the sidelines, sleeping on the job), still gets paid, nobody bothers him, at times we do not even notice he is there at all and enjoy the overseas trip, that chap is brilliant or like Bata James, who the heck cares about incompetent, unqualified, yadayada? The 3-big words sum it all - connection, connection and connection....da?

    If the story is true... I feel really bad for Yoo Yong Sung.. there is nothing worse than struggling to find your identity... he was barely treated as a coach and BAM did not recognise his presence at all

    I hope he can leave Malaysia and instead come to Australia, I'm sure we'll be glad to have him!

    going to FA Cup in BUkit Jalil?

    BAM doesn't have a vision. They only sees MONEY as their main objective. The money should be spend on finding a new talented players by arranging a quarterly state tournaments maybe? What I mean is they should not finding a new players by just a tourney for school such as MSSD, MSSM, and etc. They should arranging an outside tourneys. BAM should take progressive action, not just by sharpen top players' skills.
