Malaysian minister quiries role of foreign coaches

Malaysia's Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Azalina Othman Said has urged the country's national sports associations to stop relying too much on foreign coaches. “I feel that there is an over dependence on foreign coaches. Why are we taking so much time to produce good local coaches?” she said as reported by The Star. "Almost all the sports have high performance teams but the bigger teams have this tendency to hire foreigners. It was okay for a while but by now we should be looking at the local coaches.”
