english.jpnn.com, MALAYSIA - Malaysian badminton legend Lee Chong Wei did not rule out a career as a coach.
Lee, who is now more active as a businessman, admitted that he received offers from a number of countries to take charge of the men's singles sector.
So far, there has been no official statement on which countries are interested in him. However, the Malaysian media New Strait Times wrote that the offer might come from big badminton countries, such as China and Taiwan.
