The MHC are expected to retain Dharmaraj as coach for the Asiad challenge.
KUALA LUMPUR: The national hockey team’s coaching set-up will be revamped following the disastrous performance in last month’s World Cup in The Hague, Holland.
Malaysia, coached by K. Dharmaraj, finished last in the 12-team tournament for their worst-ever showing.
Malaysian Hockey Confederation (MHC) vice-president and coaching committee chairman Manjit Majit Abdullah said yesterday they would conduct a post-mortem on the team’s performance.
“The coaching set-up needs to be revamped. Our next major target is the Asian Games (in Incheon in September) where the team need to win the gold to secure a berth to the 2016 Rio Olympics.
“We need to find out what happened in The Hague and what went wrong. We have had a lot of feedback. We will sit down this weekend to discuss the issues and then make the recommendations to the council for a decision,” he added.
The MHC are expected to retain Dharmaraj as coach for the Asiad challenge. He took as coach in January following South African Paul Revington’s resignation.
Meanwhile, the MHC will name their final team today for the Glasgow Commonwealth Games from July 23-Aug 3.
