FORMER captain Sandeep Singh on Wednesday slammed the frequent change of coaches in Indian hockey, asserting that there was none better for the job than the recently-removed Harendra Singh. Harendra was sacked as India coach earlier this month following a disappointing 2018 and offered another stint with the junior squad.

He became the sixth coach to be sacked in as many years.
“You can’t be changing coaches this frequently.  The crucial Olympic qualifier (FIH Series Finals in June) is ahead of us and we should not be experimenting too much. I don’t think I have worked with a better coach than Harendra sir,” Sandeep said.  “There are a few coaches (in India) who can coach at the highest level and Harendra paaji is one of them. He should have been given more time.
