Harun to take charge today

Mahbub Harun was yesterday appointed as the head coach of the Bangladesh hockey team for the upcoming 10th Hockey Asia Cup, just two days after the release of German coach Oliver Kurtz.

Harun has been asked to take charge of the team, which is currently in camp for the Asia Cup, within today.

"After a discussion with the Bangladesh Hockey Federation president today [Wednesday], local coach Mahbub Harun has been given the responsibility to guide the national team in the upcoming Asia Cup," BHF general Abdus Sadeque said, adding that they are searching for a foreign coach as well.

Sadeque informed that Harun would join the ongoing training camp today [Thursday] and he will be assisted by the rest of the coaching staff for the tournament which is scheduled to be held in Dhaka in October.

Harun had worked as Kurtz's deputy during the Hockey World League Round-2 where Bangladesh lost against Oman to finish fifth among eight teams. The veteran coach, however, had a good record previously as he guided the national team to victory over China in 2013.
