Sardar wants to coach European club teams
CHANDIGARH: Former India hockey captain Sardar Singh, who called time on his international career, is planning to coach premier European club teams in near future.
“After taking permission from Hockey India and Haryana government, I will start coaching. I am planning to work with clubs in premier European leagues,” Sardar, who has played in Dutch and German leagues, told mediapersons on Thursday. While there has been a demand for foreign coaches in Indian hockey, Sardar admitted that communication is a problem as not every player is fluent in english. “Definitely, communication gap does exist at times. During a match, the two minute break after each quarter is very crucial for he players and during this time, coach is to explain about his analysis of the game.
When he (foreign coach) speaks in English, usually there not much time left for translation,” Sardar explained the practical difficulty. (PTI)
