KUALA LUMPUR: Mixed doubles pair Chan Peng Soon-Cheah Yee See have both decided to leave the Badminton Association of Malaysia on Friday (Nov 4).

BAM secretary Kenny Goh and national doubles coaching director Rexy Mainaky both confirmed the news in a press conference at Academy Badminton Malaysia (ABM) in Bukit Kiara.

"Peng Soon and Yee See have both decided to quit BAM. They feel that the time is right for them to move on. Peng Soon shared that he had his own plans after this. He did not reveal what those plans are," said Kenny.

Peng Soon and Yee See's decision to leave the national team comes just days after another mixed doubles shuttler Peck Yen Wei called it quits.

Peng Soon's former partner Goh Liu Ying had also announced her retirement after the Malaysian Open in January next year.

The veteran pair had formed a successful partnership before this and had captured silver in the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Peng Soon had failed to reach the same heights with Yee See.
