KUALA LUMPUR: There was another twist in Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) on Tuesday when former international Tan Aik Mong resigned as the Talent Management Group (TMG) director.

His decision just comes six days after singles coach Rashid Sidek quit the national body. Rashid stated that he could no longer work under the charge of Aik Mong as he felt his credibility as a coach was undermined.Tan Aik Mong

The 63-year-old Aik Mong said his decision to quit in a huff was in relation to the recent changes that took place in the coaching structure on Monday.

Aik Mong had separated the national team into three groups – Team A, Team B and Team C and moved around all the coaches, which led to Rashid’s resignation.
On Monday, though, BAM’s president Tengku Tan Sri Mahaleel Tengku Ariff met all the national coaches and announced that the coaching set-up has gone back to the original  structure and announced that there was only one national team.

“I was called by Tengku Mahaleel to assist him in implementing new changes and plans to revive Malaysia’s badminton,” lamented Aik Mong, who was appointed on Sept 7.

“However, as these changes and plans have now been reverted back to the original coaching structure that has been used previously, my involvement is no longer necessary,” he said.

When pressed for more comments, he said: “Tengku Mahaleel knows about my decision. That is all that I can say for now.”
