Is there a conflict within the ranks of the MHC?

That seems to be the case when one studies proceedings that occurred over the past few days.

It started with a statement by NSC Director General Dato Ahmad Shapawi who revealed that the MHC had proposed several appointments such as Terry Walsh and Neil Hawgood for the men's and women's team respectively.

But the discussion that took place on Friday between NSC and MHC have further strengthenedtalk that two foreign technical directors are to be appointed, which is a sheer waste of tax payers money.

Oddly MHC and NSC opted to meet barely two hours before the MHC Coaching Committee met at the Olympic Hotel.

What was the hurry to rush the joint meeting on an important matter other then the fact that Neelan Pari had an hidden agenda as she wanted to decide what rightfully should be the job of the coaching committee.

Though the coaching committee did not make any formal announcements, speculation is rife that Stephen van Huizrn is the next national coach with K. Dharmaraj the women senior team coach.

Arul Selvarah retains his position as Junuors coach subject to the Asian Juniors performancewhile Lailin Abu Hassan will handle the junior girls.

Lim Chiow Chuan is expected to be named as the Project 2020 coach this opening up the 1Mas Director position which will likely go to Nor Saiful Zaini.

But all this is subject to the role Beelam Pari plays and the Selangor connection in MHC which will ultimately destroy whatever is left of the sport as in the kingdom of blind those with one eye rule!
