TIL Desk Sports/ World champion P.V. Sindhu on Tuesday said that while it is on the current crop of players if they want to take up coaching in the future or not, it is necessary that coaches at the highest level of badminton in the country be qualified for the job.
Indian national coach Pullela Gopichand had recently said that current crop of players moving into coaching once they are done with their playing careers would help in solving the problem of a lack of indigenous coaches at the highest level of the sport in the country.
“To each their own, nobody can tell a player that they have to become a coach. Gopi sir was a great player and a great coach I think,” she told reporters on the sidelines of the award ceremony of the PNB MetLife Junior Badminton Championship 2019.
