“I am actually getting used to playing without a coach because I have no sponsor. Since I have no sponsor, I just have to play alone.
“I can say that a coach is very, very important but since I have no support, I just have to keep on playing alone. If I had a coach, it would be even better of course.”

It would be recalled that the Minister of Youth and Sports, Solomon Dalung, had earlier promised to support Quadri for the ITTF World Cup.
