Minister Hopes A Trilateral Meeting Can End Badminton Crisis

KUCHING, Jan 6 (Bernama) -- Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek hopes to end the badminton crisis before the Malaysian Open by having a trilateral talk.

Ahmad Shabery said he would meet Datuk Misbun Sidek and Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) President Datuk Mohd Nadzmi Mohd Salleh as soon as he returns to Kuala Lumpur after his two-day visit to Sarawak.

"Last night, I met Misbun and he opened up about his differences with BAM," he told reporters here after visiting the RM33 million State Aquatic Centre at the Youth and Sports Complex here Thursday.

However, Ahmad Shabery did not reveal the contents of what Misbun had told him during the meeting or the former national champion's decision to resign as national coach on Dec 31.

"Certainly when someone is 'hurt', it will take time to heal or rectify the situation," said Ahmad Shabery who was asked by Mohd Nadzmi to help resolve the situation.

Misbun who has been coaching world number one Datuk Lee Chong Wei dropped a bombshell on the eve of the New Year (Dec 31) when he tendered his resignation through an email to BAM.

However, he did not state any reason for his decision to quit.

Meanwhile, the aquatic centre being build by the ministry is expected to be ready and operational by November this year.

"The opening of the aquatic centre here will ensure the development of swimming in the country as Sarawak are already a major contributor of national swimmers," he said.
