Despite receiving offers to become the national badminton coach from several Asian countries, former world no 1 and Malaysian hero Datuk Lee Chong Wei says that he is not interested to pursue the path of coaching just yet.

Confessing his love for the game, Lee, a three-time Olympic silver medallist, however said that he intends to stay put in Malaysia for the time being.

“It is true that Chong Wei received an offer, of course I still love badminton but at the moment, I do not intend to be a coach.

“Chong Wei will continue to hang out in Malaysia, attend Ramadan Bazaars and wait for the Raya open house invitations,” Lee wrote on his Instagram update last night.

It was previously reported that Lee had been courted by several Asian countries that wanted him to coach their national teams.

He, however, did not disclose which nations are pursuing his service.

Lee’s mentor and former coach Datuk Misbun Sidek also encouraged him to make his name abroad before returning to coach the country’s national badminton squad.
