Rajinder pleads ignorance over dope issue

New Delhi:

Indian hockey coach Rajinder Singh today pleaded ignorance about the dope controversy surrounding forward Tejbir Singh and said he would only comment on the issue after talking to the player. "I came to know about this through media reports I read in Australia and I would talk to the player in a day or two and understand the whole issue," he told reporters on the team's return after the four-nation tournament. Rajinder insisted that the team management had decided to replace Tejbir during the Olympic qualifiers at Madrid in March due to his hamstring injury and he had no knowledge of the doping angle. Tejbir had, however, said last week that the coach had informed him about the dope test in Madrid. (PTI)
