'I cannot forget what Frost did to me'
Published on: Friday, February 17, 2017

Kuala Lumpur: The row between national badminton ace Datuk Lee Chong Wei and Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) technical director Morten Frost Hansen does not appear to be easing off.

Chong Wei said he felt relieved after voicing out his frustration against Frost which had been simmering over the past one and half years and he could now concentrate on recuperating from his injury.

"I have said what I felt about Frost. I have been keeping it over the past one and a half years...it was difficult to work with him. Now I am relieved to get it off my chest.

"I will not forget what he had been done to me. It would be a bit difficult (to reconcile), after having been with BAM for 18 years, no coach has ever done that to me. As a player, I always abide by all BAM decisions," he told reporters after launching telecommunications shop, XOX Space in Sunway Pyramid here Thursday.

Chong Wei clarified that he did not want to think about the problem with Frost and would leave it to the national governing body to resolve it.

The world number one had recently voiced his dissatisfaction with Frost's move which appeared to be expediting his retirement from badminton.

On his chance to turn out for All England next month, Chong Wei responded positively even though it would depend on his full recovery from a knee injury.

"I am recovering from the injury. I am happy with the positive development. All England is one my favourite tournaments. It is still two weeks away, I have yet to resume court training due to the pain and phobia but I will try," he said.

Chong Wei was installed as the top seed in the All England championships which would be held at the Barclaycard Arena, Birmingham, England from March 7 to 12. – Bernama
