No movement on Sindhu’s new coach yet: Pullela Gopichand

Vastavam web: India national badminton chief coach Pullela Gopichand has refuted reports of Park Tae Sang being in line to replace South Korean Kim Ji Hyun as the women’s singles coach of the national team. “I have no clue about anything like that. No idea where these things come from. As far as I know, there have been no movement on that front,” Gopichand told IANS.

Hyun, who played a pivotal role in P.V. Sindhu’s march to the world title recently, last week resigned as India’s women’s singles coach citing personal reasons. After that, reports came in that the men’s singles coach Sang will step into Hyun’s shoes to train Sindhu.

Following her maiden victory at the World Championships in Basel where she defeated Japan’s Nozomi Okuhara 21-7, 21-7 in the summit clash, Sindhu made early exits at China Open and Korea Open thereafter.
