“The World Cup has been a failure for us. We have a high performance director (Roelant Oltmans) and Terry Walsh who has been there since the past eight months. I don’t think their services have benefited the Indian team,” he told reporters. India managed to draw 1-1 with Spain yesterday after losing the first two games against Belgium and England.

“Nowadays, we are losing even against teams like Belgium. If an Indian was coach, then he would know as to how to motivate and strategise during matches. We should have won all the matches but lost in the last minute.”
