New Delhi: Players being warned by the FIH to stay from the World Series Hockey is a "serious issue", says the event's Delhi franchise coach Roelant Oltmans but he is hopeful that the deadlock will be sorted out soon.
"The FIH warning is a serious issue at the moment. Not only for the Indians but for overseas players also. Talks with the authorities are on and I hope that everything will be sorted out. We will have the best players and this league will be a huge success," 57-year-old Dutch, who is coaching the Delhi Wizards said.
The USD two million league does not have the support of the FIH, which has warned that any player taking part in it will be banned from international tournaments like the Olympics.
