Pakistan Hockey Federation requires complete overhaul: Ex-Olympian Shahnaz

Islamabad, Sun, 14 Oct 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Oct. 14 (ANI): Former Pakistani Olympian Shahnaz Sheikh has reiterated calls for a complete overhaul of the Pakistan Hockey Federation (PHF) after former captain Tahir Zaman was appointed to a consultant coaching role, in what was the first move by the PHF following a poor show at the London Olympics 2012.

While the PHF is yet to make an official announcement, it was confirmed that Olympian Tahir would be given the role of coaching consultant for national teams including the senior, junior and women's outfits, reports the Daily Times.

The 43-year-old, who was part of the 1994 World Cup winning team, is an International Hockey Federation (FIH) qualified coach and has served Egypt and Azerbaijan besides having a stint with the Greenshirts a decade ago. By employing Tahir, the PHF has dismissed the notion of a complete overhaul, the paper said.

However, Shahnaz, who is a core part of the Olympians' campaign to remove the current PHF set-up, said the decision would not bring desirable results.

"I wish Tahir all the best. The decision might have been taken keeping in mind the best interest of the team but just bringing in individuals will not help our hockey. There is a need for a complete overhaul and a team comprising competent officials is the need of the hour," Shahnaz was quoted as saying. (ANI)
