BANGKOK: Malaysia are unlikely to get Wong Tat Meng ( pic ) to be the coach in the women's singles department.
There is a vacancy following the resignation of coach Indra Wijaya in January but national singles coaching director Wong Choong Hann said they were not in a hurry.
"We are aware that Tat Meng is available. We are looking at adding depth but for now, we want to review the form of our women players first," said Choong Hann.
Tat Meng has ended his stint with South Korea on a high after three years and five months working as the singles coach.
In his last stint as a coach here in Bangkok, his players made him proud by lifting the Uber Cup after 12 years.
They defeated China 3-2 in a thrilling tie at Impact Arena on Sunday.
Although Tat Meng's contract runs until end of this year, he has chosen to resign but did not want to reveal the reason behind his decision.
"I'm just happy to leave the team with such memorable and fantastic result at the Uber Cup," said Tat Meng, who is seen as the man behind the rise of the 20-year-old An Se-young.
"I did not tell the team earlier as I did not want to distract them."
His resignation comes in the wake of South Korea appointing former top singles player Sung Ji-hyun into their coaching team this year.
"There have been so many memories. I've made good friends. They have really looked after me well. It was a good experience for me, and I've learnt much as a coach too."
Asked whether he would consider Malaysia if they approached him, Tat Meng said: "I have not made any decision right now. I just want to take a few weeks to rest first."
However, he's expected to join another country's badminton stable.
