National hockey chief coach K. Dharmaraj's (far right) fate is still uncertain following the meeting called by Malaysian Hockey Confederation (MHC) president Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah on Friday.
KUALA LUMPUR: It seems that K. Dharmaraj will remain as national hockey coach a little while longer.
No decision was forthcoming on Dharmaraj’s fate at Friday’s meeting called by Malaysian Hockey Confederation (MHC) president Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah.
Instead, the meeting was held to discuss the report submitted by an MHC panel on Malaysia’s World Cup performance in The Hague, Holland, last month. Malaysia finished last in the 12-team tournament.
MHC secretary Datuk Mohamed Johari Abdul Aziz said Dharmaraj’s position as national coach was not discussed at the meeting.
“The issue on Dharmaraj will be dealt with by the MHC council on Aug 18. The meeting today was basically to review the report submitted by the panel formed to investigate the World Cup outing. The panel members were present and they briefed the president on their findings.
“For now, everything remains status quo in the national team. The players will train as normal,” said Johari.
There were calls for Dharmaraj to be sacked after another dismal show at the Commonwealth Games, which ended in Glasgow last Sunday.
