Misbun's aspiration to lift the Thomas Cup

Last update: 17/05/2018
SEPANG, May 17 (Bernama) -- National men's singles head coach, Datuk Misbun Sidek is hoping to see the Malaysian shuttlers lift the coveted Thomas Cup and end the 26-year drought by Malaysia to claim victory in the tournament before he retires.

Misbun, a former national badminton singles player, did not discount the possibility that the Thomas Cup edition this time would be his last involvement with the national team for the competition to be held for eight days beginning Sunday in Bangkok, Thailand.

"Yes, maybe the last. That is why I hope that the national team can create a surprise. Although after retiring as a coach, I would certainly hope that the Malaysian shuttlers would succeed at every edition of the Thomas Cup and see that Malaysia emerge as champion.

"With the preparations that we have made over the past several months, I see that the team members are highly spirited. I hope all the singles players as well as the doubles can work together to realise the dream of ending the 26-year drought without any championship title," he said.

He said this when approached by reporters at the KLIA2, here today before departing for Bangkok.....
