Hasan Sardar resigns as hockey team manager


Pakistan hockey team manager Hasan Sardar on Monday stepped down as team’s manager citing busy personal schedule.

Sardar while talking to the media said that he will not be available to the team for their future endeavors due to his personal commitments.

“Due to some personal commitments, I have resigned from my post,” he stated.

Sardar said that he has adviced the PHF’s president on several issues regarding hockey in Pakistan. He was quick to add that the federation should try to solve the problems as soon as possible.

“I have given them some recommendations on several issues regarding hockey,” he said.

Former Olympian stressed upon the need to appoint a foreign coach for the team in order to achieve good results.

“Foreign coach is need of the hour and the federation should look into this matter,” said Sardar.

He said that there is immense talent in the country but no one is keen towards flourishing the young talented kids who can represent Pakistan at International level.

“Federation should take steps to highlight young kids and provide them opportunities,” he said.

Sardar appealed to the Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan to pay attention towards the national game and try to establish a proper system for its betterment.

“I would like to request Imran Khan to do something for uplifting hockey in Pakistan,” he said.
