The Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) are understood to be adding Indonesian firepower to their coaching line-up by the year end as the national body are in the interview process with the potential candidates.

There has not been any particular name linked to the job yet, but the candidate will most likely join the doubles department spearheaded by coaching director Rexy Mainaky.

At this point, the doubles team are shorthanded in coaches after the departures of Chan Chong Ming, Flandy Limpele and Paulus Firman in the past year.

Despite that, the BAM managed well with the personnel in their current doubles coaching set-up that includes Hoon Thien How, Lee Meng Yean, Tan Bin Shen and Teo Kok Siang.

The national doubles’ pairings also delivered the most titles at the top tier World Tour events this year.

It started with Man Wei Chong-Tee Kai Wun and Anna Cheong-Teoh Mei Xing winning at the Syed Modi International in January, before Goh Sze Fei-Nur Izzuddin struck gold at the German Open two months later.

Man-Tee then stunned Olympic champions Lee Yang-Wang Chi-lin to clinch the Taipei Open title in July, before Aaron Chia-Soh Wooi Yik ended the country’s 45-wait for world champions by capturing the men’s doubles title at the world meet in August.

Last week, Pearly Tan-M.Thinaah won the French Open title to end a 13-year drought for a top-tier title in the women’s doubles category.
