    HIRING OF LOCAL COACHES: Ex-internationals applaud faith shown by BAM

    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.

    BAM has no choice but to shift attention to local candidates after Frost had apparently asked for a monthly salary of RM100,000, and the association is set to initiate a move to bring Misbun Sidek back as the supremo of the national team.

    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.
