New Delhi: Indian men's hockey's newly-appointed foreign coach Terry Walsh feels patience and flexibility are the two key ingredients which a person needs to be successful in a tough country like India.
Some of Walsh's high-profile countrymates -- hockey legend Ric Charlesworth and former cricketer Greg Chappell --did not have the best of stints as coaches of the Indian teams and Walsh said he was well aware about what they lacked.
"According to my view, it's about one's personality and flexibility. If you come to the Indian environment without flexibility, you will stagnate and die. It's not possible to deliver unless you are flexible," Walsh told reporters on the sidelines of Hockey India League Closed Bid 2013 at a city hotel here today.
