Pak Hockey Federation can't pass buck to players to bring CWG glory: Samiullah

Former Pakistani hockey player Samiullah has said that the Pakistan Hockey Federation (PHF)s duty would not end by passing the buck to the players.


Karachi, Oct 2: Former Pakistani hockey player Samiullah has said that the Pakistan Hockey Federation (PHF)'s duty would not end by passing the buck to the players.

Samiullah's comments came after PHF secretary Asif Bajwa said that the federation had provided best trainers, expensive coach and world-class facilities, and it was now up to the players to perform at the Delhi Commonwealth Games.

"This is running away from the responsibility by saying that they have done everything to train the players and it was now up to them to perform in the Commonwealth Games," The Dawn quoted Samiullah, as saying.

"It is the duty of the federation to ensure top-class performance from the team throughout the event," he added.

Samiullah further said that the October 3-14 Games in the Indian capital would be difficult, as teams like Australia and hosts India would prove to be invincible for Pakistan.

"Spending money lavishly doesn't mean good coaching to the side. Focus and effective strategies are required to produce a strong side, where I think the federation lacks," Samiullah said.

"It is now time that the federation should revise its strategy and take ome concrete steps to shape a robust team," he added.
