SEREMBAN, Oct 6 (Bernama) -- The candidate to fill the post of national men's doubles coach left vacant by Jeremy Gan last week will be finalised next week, says Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) president Datuk Seri Mohamad Norza Zakaria.
He said he hoped men's doubles chief coach Cheah Soon Kit would quickly find a compatible candidate to fill the post.
"I have given the responsibility to Soon Kit to identify the coach to replace Jeremy. I want Soon Kit to have one who could work with him to realise the targets and objectives that we have set.
"I have met him two or three days ago, and he had given several suggestions and we agreed that the next one will be a local coach and he (Soon Kit) should take into consideration the offers made by our former shuttlers, especially those who had represented the country," he told reporters after the opening of the 48th Yuen Loong Gold Cup Badminton Tournament by Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin, here today.
Mohamad Norza said this in response to whether BAM would accept former national chief coach Yap Kim Hock to work with Soon Kit if there were no other candidates to fill the post.....
