Roelant Oltmans, the head coach of Pakistan hockey team, has decided to step down from his position citing he has not been given the desired environment to work with the team.
The Dutchman took the blame of Pakistan team’s unimpressive run in the recent times on himself.
“I’m responsible for the performance and results of the team,” Oltman wrote in the letter to the Pakistan Hockey Federation.
“I feel that the circumstances at present do not create an environment where we can get the best out of the team,” he added.
Pakistan hockey team did not do well during Champions Trophy where they finished at the last position in the six-team tournament.
Moreover, they failed put up any significant show during their stint in Commonwealth Games and also in Asian Games.
Oltman was hired as Pakistan team’s head coach earlier in January this year.
He believes that the PHF cannot provide him with a better working environment, so he weighed resigning from his post as the best option.
“I feel that the circumstances at present do not create an environment where we can get the best out of the team,” he went on to say.
