Hardenra Singh has been sacked just 8 months into his new job as Hockey India’s coach and Hockey Fans across Twitter have shredded Hockey India into bits and pieces! 

Harendra was appointed as the Indian team back in May, 2018, after the side’s disappointing run at the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast under coach Sjoerd Marijne.

Under him, India went on to win the Bronze medal at the Asian Games, and then followed it up with a gold at the Asian Champions Trophy. At the World Cup, India finished in the 6th position under Harendra Singh.

Harendra is the 25th coach of the men’s hockey team who has been sacked in as many years, and the sixth in last six years.

Here is how fans reacted to the news of his sacking on Twitter.


There’s a lot to unpack from Harendra Singh’s firing, but the bottom line is that constant coach sacking by Hockey India is not tolerable.
