New Delhi: India's junior men's hockey team head coach Gregg Clark on Friday said the upcoming FIH Junior World Cup could be a stepping stone for the country to regain its lost glory and added that long-term planning is the only way out to consistently get good results.
"India has a rich history of hockey and distinct style of play. They won many Olympic medals in the past. That's the history you want to replicate in the Indian hockey. You got to start from somewhere. May be, this World Cup is the start of that. We can only hope. We just need the structure around it (Indian hockey) to be tightened up," Clarke said here.
Former South African Olympian Clark was appointed the head coach of the junior side in April this year to prepare them for the World Cup starting next month from December 6.
