    FORMER internationals Kwan Yoke Meng and Yap Kim Hock welcomed the BA of Malaysia's (BAM) move to give local coaches the chance to plot the course of the national team after the attempt to hire Morten Frost Hansen as the director of coaching has fallen short.

    Yoke Meng, who served as the national singles coach in the 1990s, supported the move to give local coaches the opportunity but he also felt that it would be good to get a person who can can manage the team while the coaches should be solely allowed to focus on improving the performance of the players.
