KARACHI: Roelant Oltmans on Saturday resigned from his position as the head coach of Pakistan hockey team.
In his resignation letter to Pakistan Hockey Federation (PHF), he wrote that he is responsible for the performance and results of the team.
“I feel that the circumstances at present do not create an environment where we can get the best out of the team,” the Dutchman wrote, adding that he doesn’t think that PHF has the possibility to change the circumstances to a level that is required from his point of view.
Oltman was appointed as the coach of the national team earlier this year for the term of two years.
The Pakistan hockey team had a dismal campaign during the Hockey Champions Trophy 2018, where they finished last among the six countries that participated in the tournament.
Moreover, the team finished seventh at the Commonwealth Games in Australia earlier this year.
