Much has been said about the demand made by a national coach to increase his salary to up to 20k per month. While many are opposed to it, I clearly cannot understand why its a non issue when we end up paying much more then that to foreign personnel that we have employed over the years. And there is a national coach of another sport that was promised a certain pay bracket but now is being forced to accept something else. Is that being fair to our local coaches? I agree that some of the demands made are downright ridiculous, and support the statement made by Dato Zolkples Embong the NSC DG, that coaches will have to show results before given pay rises. But was this the case in badminton? Are the salaries being docked for non-performance?
