German hockey coach in town

German hockey coach Peter Gerhard Rach arrived Dhaka yesterday to discuss with Bangladesh Hockey Federation (BHF) officials over his possible appointment as the head coach of the national team.
BHF will oversee Rach's skill and experience and work out the financial details before considering his appointment as national hockey coach.
During his three days stay Rach will work with the Bangladesh hockey players who have been undergoing training for the South Asian Games.
Asian Hockey Federation development officer Tayeb Akram, who took the responsibility of finding a coach for Bangladesh, sent the German coach for the development of Bangladesh hockey.
Rach began his career as hockey coach for the German Junior side (14-18 years) in 1972 and then coached different clubs teams. He also acted as coach for club level hockey.
The 60-year old German coached the Indian hockey team for one year in 2004 and under his guidance India finished seventh in Olympic hockey and finished fourth in the Champions Trophy in Lahore in the same year.
"I think Bangladesh should be in a place where Japan, China and Malaysia stay," said Rach, who is currently living in Dubai, while talking to the reporters yesterday.
