SKOR.id - Lee Chong Wei melontarkan kritik keras atas performa tak maksimal para pebulu tangkis tuan rumah dalam ajang Malaysia Open 2024 yang digelar pekan lalu.

Dalam Malaysia Open 2024, skuad Negeri Jiran memiliki 14 wakil di lima nomor pertandingan yang diselenggarakan di Axiata Arena, Kuala Lumpur.

Sayang bagi publik Negeri Jiran, wakilnya harus berguguran di fase awal turnamen bahkan tak ada satu pun yang mampu menembus semifinal.

Hasil itu sekaligus memperpanjang masa puasa gelar pebulu tangkis tuan rumah di ajang Malaysia Open yang sudah berlangsung sejak 2019.

Lee Chong Wei sebagai wakil Negeri Jiran terakhir yang mampu meraih gelar di Malaysia Open pada 2018 pun mengaku kecewa.

Mantan tunggal putra nomor satu dunia tersebut juga mempertanyakan komitmen dan rasa tanggung jawab para pebulu tangkis Negeri Jiran.

Tak hanya itu, Chong Wei juga menyoroti sejumlah pemain yang lebih memilih liburan akhir tahun dalam waktu cukup lama ketimbang bersiap untuk Malaysia Open 2024.

“Ini awal tahun yang buruk. Saya harap para pemain menyadari tanggung jawabnya, mereka harus berkorban untuk kariernya,” katanya dikutip dari New Straits Times.

“Saya melihat di sosial media ada beberapa pemain berlibur (akhir tahun) ke luar negeri meski tahu Malaysia Open 2024 dimulai 9 Januari.”

“Saya tak mengatakan para pemain tak boleh pergi liburan. Namun, Anda harus mempertimbangkan waktunya,” pemilik 12 gelar Malaysia Open itu melanjutkan.

Lebih lanjut, Lee Chong Wei meminta para juniornya menjadikan para pemain Cina, Korea Selatan, dan Jepang sebagai panutan.

Pria 41 tahun itu menyebut pemain asal Cina, Korea Selatan, dan Jepang sama sekali tak bersantai-santai selama periode liburan Natal dan Tahun Baru 2023 lalu.

Mereka tetap fokus berlatih, bahkan sejumlah atlet Jepang masih berkompetisi dalam Kejuaraan Nasional.

Hasilnya pun terlihat di atas lapangan. Atlet dari Cina, Korea Selatan, dan Jepang mampu melaju jauh di Malaysia Open 2024 bahkan beberapa di antaranya merebut gelar juara.

“Sebagai seorang manusia, kita memang butuh waktu istirahat dan jeda tetapi lihat juga waktunya,” kata pemilik tiga medali perak Olimpiade itu.

“Ketika Anda sudah memenangi medali emas Olimpiade atau pensiun, silakan berlibur setiap hari karena tak ada yang akan mengganggu Anda.”

Pada sisi lain, Lee Chong Wei merasa perlu melancarkan kritik karena ingin para pebulu tangkis Malaysia bisa tampil optimal di setiap turnamen.

Terlebih empat bulan pertama tahun ini menjadi sangat penting karena menentukan hasil akhir perebutan tiket ke Olimpiade 2024 di Paris, Prancis.

“Memenangi satu turnamen dalam setahun itu mudah tetapi menjaga konsistensi adalah hal sulit. Faktor utamanya adalah keinginan sang pemain,” katanya.

“Anda tak bisa jadi pemain nomor satu dunia hanya dengan memenangi satu turnamen dalam satu tahun.” 

“Anda harus bisa menjuarai tujuh hingga delapan gelar, konsisten menembus semifinal dan final, dan itu butuh latihan serta pengorbanan.”

“Tahun ini sangat penting karena ada Olimpiade. Saya berharap semua pemain menyadari tanggung jawabnya dan kembali bangkit,” Lee Chong Wei memungkasi.
