LAHORE Star drag-flicker Sohail Abbas believes that Pakistan needs a foreign coach to revive their past glory by blending Asian style with European structure. Sohail, who failed to live up to his reputation as a dreaded penalty corner specialist in this World Cup, said hockey has changed a lot in recent times and the teams cannot afford weakness in any area. A team will have to be good in everything - defending, attacking, distributing or penalty corner conversion. The players now have multiple roles. I say the forwards are the first line of defence. We are known for our skills. But not only the skills, the structure (of how to play) is also important, Sohail was quoted as saying. We (India and Pakistan) need maintain out Asian style but in European structure. You have to be fit and able to play at the same intensity for 70 minutes. That is the way the Europeans and the Australians are, and we have to do that if we want to catch up with them. So, I think Pakistan needs a foreign coach, he added. Sohail was recalled to Pakistan World Cup squad after a long lay-off along with a couple of senior players to strengthen the side. It was disappointing if you score just two goals in five matches. I tried my best but the goals did not come. But I want to continue playing for my country, may be in the next World Cup. I am happy with what I have achieved in my career from 1998 to 2010. I am not retiring, he said. Sohail conceded that the senior players failed to perform their best and his side lacked consistency. It is true we are inconsistent but the team is in a building process. The team is a mixture of some senior and younger players. It will take time to build a strong team. We want to do well and we can do well in the Asian Games, said the 34-year-old. Sohail also said Pakistan needs to play more matches against top sides in the world if they want to catch up with other teams. We did not play many games before the World Cup. We need to play often with the top six sides in the world as you learn only by playing international matches. Cricket is played all the year round but it is not the case in hockey. We need to play more international matches, he said. Sardar wants team management changed Hasan Sardar, Pakistan hockey chief selector, has suggested changes in the team management after humiliating performance in the World Cup. Losing in an event of such a magnitude at such a bad way not something that can be digested easily, he added. The changes in the team and its management is the need of the hour, he added. I am very disappointed with the performance of the team. I was not expecting such a show from them after watching them during the camp training, he added. Zeeshan Ashraf may hang his shoes Pakistans hockey captain Zeeshan Ashraf on Tuesday offered to retire from international hockey following his teams poor performance in the World Cup. Pakistan, four time champions of the world cup, with just one win the group stage, finished last in their pool and now face the ignominy of playing for the 11th-12th position playoff against Canada. I am ready to quit and take the responsibility for the teams dismal show in the World Cup, said Zeeshan, a seasoned defender. I am ready to retire but its the PHF (Pakistan Hockey Federation) which will decide my future. According to a report coming from the team ranks, Pakistans hockey chiefs will sit down in Lahore soon after the World Cup to take a decision on the future of under-performing senior players.
