The three-member panel formed to look into the demands of Terry Walsh to stay on as the chief coach of the national hockey team could not arrive at a decision on Friday. The panel decided to meet again on November 17.
COACH WALSHS FATE TO BE DECIDED ON NOVEMBER 17
The panel comprising former hockey captains Ajit Pal Singh, Ashok Kumar and Zafar Iqbal met Walsh, Hockey India Performance Director Roelant Oltmans and Sports Authority of India officials for over three hours but could not take a final decision. HI officials were not present at the meeting. Panel chairman Ajit Pal said that there was a discussion on the demands raised by Walsh but decided to meet again.
Walsh’s sudden resignation last month came as a surprise to many after he guided India to their first Asian Games gold in 16 years. A day later, however, the Australian agreed to continue in his role, provided his conditions were fulfilled.
