PHF to welcome Ex-hockey Greats to uplift the game



The Pakistan Hockey Federation (PHF) would welcome former hockey greats if they wish to join it, in its efforts to uplift the national game. “The PHF President had directed to hold a programme which includes the aspect of mental fitness, for the players so that they do not get rusty and get in touch with the game because of the lockdown situation due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We have also requested our former Olympians Samiullah, Hasan Sardar, Manzoor Jr, Rashid Jr, Akhtar Rasool and Qasim Zia to give lectures to players on mental fitness and share their experiences with them,” PHF Secretary Asif Bajwa said while talking to a private news channel. He said Samiullah gave an hour lecture to the player. “Khawaja Junaid and other coaches also attended the lecture. If any former Olympian speaks against the federation then it doesn’t mean that they are angry. —APP
