But what the DG failed to state was as to how he failed to assist the career of World Junior Champion Zulfadli Zulkifli.
There was a discussion between the NSC DG and KLRC owner Dato Seri Andrew Kam last November and it was mutually agreed that both parties plan and execute a program to ensure Zulfadli gets the best as his career was on a downside.
NSC was to come up with a draft MOU to ink the partnership but that document never saw the alight of the day and KLRC waited 7 months before giving a release to Zulfadli to venture out own his own given that there was no government support for a young Malay boy who rose up to become World Junior Champion, all the way funded by a private club.
Perhaps it's too late in the day but will Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin care to revisit this case and hold discussions with KLRC? Or is KJ too scared of the NSC to act what is old or Malaysian badminton and lend credibility to private clubs?
The shuttle is in your court YB!
