Yongbo is urged to quit by angry fans after a shock Thomas Cup exit threw their Olympic preparations into chaos.
“Li Yongbo should quit,” Chinese fan Zhang Bohan told AFP bluntly. “I feel like there’s something wrong with the Chinese team with the management or something.”
Chinese great Lin Dan won his match against Lee Dong-Keun but it hasn’t been a convincing tournament for the 32-year-old Olympic champion, who earlier dropped a game against French unknown Lucas Corvee.
Li Yongbo can be considered one of the most successful in badminton management but is his time really up?
