CHI SHANRONG has made a request to the BA of Malaysia (BAM) to re-designate him as a Bukit Jalil Sports School (BJSS) coach following speculations he resigned as the national women's singles coach last week.

Shanrong, formerly the BJSS girls' singles coach, was promoted to the senior position by BAM 18 months ago after Wong Tat Meng's resignation.

However, the women's singles struggled to make any progress under his reign and BAM has been looking for a successor with Tat Meng expected back.

BAM general manager Kenny Goh said Shanrong only requested for a short break.

"I have not received any letter from him but he did request for a break. Shanrong has also inquired whether it is possible for him to return to BJSS," said Kenny yesterday.

"Shanrong has not resigned and his request to join BJSS will be decided during the coaching and training committee (CTC) meeting on Saturday."

 

Shanrong's wish to return to BJSS may not be easy to grant as there are sufficient coaches in the junior set-up and there is also a possibility that he could remain with the senior team as Tat Meng's assistant.

There could also be a few other changes as Cheah Soon Kit could return as men's doubles coach. Soon Kit is also being mentioned as a possible candidate to be made the national chief coach if BAM doesn't seek the services of South Korean Park Joo Bong.
