RASHID Sidek retracted his resignation letter yesterday and will resume his responsibilities as the national singles coach today.
Rashid handed his letter to BA of Malaysia (BAM) general manager Kenny Goh and said he was asked to resume his job immediately.
He had tendered his resignation on Sept 19 after his rocky relationship with talent management group (TMG) director Tan Aik Mong.
Aik Mong’s decision to restructure the national team didn’t get the support of the coaches and he, too, resigned last Tuesday after BAM president Tengku Mahaleel Tengku Ariff decided to revert to the old set-up to defuse the tension.
"I have retracted my letter and will resume my job again. Now that the management will set us specific targets to achieve, I will take up the challenge," said Rashid.
"We have also been given a free hand to come up with our programmes and goals, and we will be accountable for the performance of the players."
Rashid will handle the men’s singles squad consisting 10 players together with Tey Seu Bock and Hendrawan.
