I was forced to step down: Rajinder

Former India coach Rajinder Singh who made way for India's first foreign coach Gerhard Rach brought further trouble for the Indian Hockey Federation's top brass saying he was "forced to step down" from the post few days before the Athens Olympics.
"Such a situation was created that I was forced to step down," Rajinder Singh, winner of this year's Dronacharya Award told a television channel on Friday.
Rajinder, who won the country as many as four titles during his two-year stint, also claimed that the IHF President K P S Gill was given a wrong feedback about him and some wrong decisions were also taken.
Rach had yesterday alleged in an interview that IHF Secretary K Jyotikumaran was instrumental in his decision to leave the job and move to Egypt.
He had also claimed that IHF secretary had called the shots during the team selection for the Olympics and had told him that he would be shown the door as soon as possible.
