Batra lashes out at Ric

Hockey India Secretary General Narinder Batra on Friday launched a scathing attack on former head coach Ric Charlesworth, calling him a “loose cannon” after the Australian criticised the poor turnout of spectators for the Hockey World League Final here.

Batra said Charlesworth needs “psychological treatment”. “I don’t react to what Ric Charlesworth says because he is a loose cannon. He himself does not know what he is saying.

I just ignore whatever he says. He might be a genius in hockey, but in communication skills, he is very poor. He needs to go back to school to learn basics,” Batra told reporters here.

“I think he needs to learn what language one speaks when he travels to a different country. We don’t react or say something bad about a country when we see poor crowd turnout. It’s that country’s problem. I don’t take his questions and I don’t answer his questions. That man needs some mental and psychological treatment,” said a fuming Batra.
