New Delhi: Hockey India (HI) Wednesday sacked the junior men’s hockey team coach Jude Felix after the national side finished a disappointing sixth in the just-concluded eight-nation tournament in Madrid.
The development came to light after HI advertised for the position on its official website Wednesday.
A source in HI said the decision to remove Jude was on expected lines following a series of below-par performances by the reigning junior world champions.
“It was expected, especially after India’s below-par performance in the recent eight-nation tournament in Madrid,” the HI source told. In that tournament earlier this month, the Indian colts lost 0-4 to Australia, 2-3 to Netherlands, 1-3 to Spain and 1-2 to Great Britain.
