KUALA LUMPUR: The Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) will leave it to their coaches to decide whether or not men’s singles ace Lee Zii Jia, who confirmed that he wants to quit the national governing body, is chosen to compete in the Badminton Asia Team Championships from Feb 15-20.

BAM president Tan Sri Mohamad Norza Zakaria said it would be up to the coaches to select the best squad as well as to set a realistic target for the biennial championships, which also serves as the 2022 Thomas Cup Qualifiers.

“Anyway, we will have the best preparation, it’s up to the coaches to suggest, perhaps a combination of professional players and BAM shuttlers, but it’s all up to them to make their proposal.

“As for the target, I have yet to discuss it with the coaches. Let them suggest first and let’s see if it is realistic or not,” he said when met by reporters after the launch of the Queen’s Baton Relay in conjunction with the 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games here today.

Yesterday, Mohamad Norza confirmed that world number seven and reigning All England champion Zii Jia had tendered his resignation letter to the national badminton governing body on Jan 11, with BAM deputy president Datuk Seri Jahaberdeen Mohamed Yunoos set to announce their decision on the matter tomorrow (Jan 21).
