THE Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) seem to have “scored an own goal” by booking the return flights for the majority of their players when the World Championships hadn’t even ended?
Liew Daren, Chong Wei Feng, Hoon Thien How-Tan Wee Kiong, Lim Khim Wah-Goh V Shem, Tee Jing Yi, Vivian Hoo-Woon Khe Wei, Goh Liu Ying-Lim Yin Loo, Amelia Anscelly-Soong Fie Cho, Chan Peng Soon, Ong Jian Guo and Tan Aik Quan-Lai Pei Jing were sent home yesterday after they all failed to get into the quarter-finals of their respective events.
Does that mean BAM never had any faith or confidence in their own players?
How can BAM expect the players to set lofty targets when the national body themselves don’t believe in them?
How do you think the players would feel, knowing that BAM had booked their return flights well in advance?
