Ex-national hockey player is now an inspector in the Royal Malaysian Police.
KUALA LUMPUR: Former hockey international Kelvinder Singh is proud to finally serve as a police inspector, and soon he may make a return to the national side.
Kelvinder, who was named the best player in the 2005 Junior World Cup in Rotterdam, started his first day on the job at the Brickfields police station on Tuesday.
The Kuala Lumpur-born midfielder, who underwent nine months of training at the Police Training Centre here last year, will begin his career in the crime department.
The 29-year-old player, who has donned the national colours 150 times since 2006, is keen to return to national duty on the hockey field.
“I am still keen to play hockey for the national team but I need to get the approval of the Royal Malaysian Police first.
“Although I have turned 29, I believe I can still play well,” said Kelvinder, who last played for Malaysia in 2011.
National chief coach K. Dharmaraj is keen to have Kelvinder in the training squad because of his vast experience but Kelvinder will also need to get the approval of the Malaysian Hockey Confederation and the National Sports Council before joining training.
Kelvinder, who obtained a degree in Sports Science from Universiti Malaya in 2012, currently plays with the KL Hockey Club.
His younger brother Harvinder, a former national player, is pursuing his accountancy degree at Universiti Putra Malaysia. Harvinder quit the team in February to focus on his internship at accounting firm Ernst & Young.
