How much is Oltmans and Walsh costing Malaysia?
|Roelant Oltmans is Malaysia's new hockey coach|
Here's a message I received today:
With Roelant Oltmans in and Terry Walsh still retained, how much is it costing us?
Oltmans, 64, signed a two-year contract with the Malaysian Hockey Confederation (MHC) recently. He replaced Stephen Van Huizen, who is now the national assistant coach. The other coaching line-ups have not changed, including technical director Terry Walsh.
The Malaysian government has, since May 9, repeatedly said it lacks funds.
With the recent (debatable and questionable) revealtion of Lim Teong Kim's RM175,000 per month salary and claims that sports associations have not received funding, it is only natural for certain quarters to question the financial impact of Oltmans and Walsh's positions.
Oltmans was Pakistan's head coach prior his Malaysian stint.
