ISLAMABAD, Dec 19 (APP):The Pakistan Hockey Federation (PHF) is considering an Australian coach for the national team whose name would be announced in the days to come.
Talking to APP, a PHF official discarded all reports for considering former German captain Christine Blunck
for the job.
“Yes PHF is considering a foreign hockey coach for the job and hopefully he will be an Australian as talks are underway with them,” he said.
He said local Pakistani coaches including Farhat Khan, Khawaja Junaid, Shahnaz Sheikh etc have been tested
time and again therefore PHF is not trying to rope in a foreigner.
“We need to catch up with the modern international standards of hockey and a foreign coach can let us achieve that goal,” he said.
