He also said that there should be 4 to 5 hockey centers in the country. The youth must be spotted and picked up from grass-root level and trained in these centers and federation must have its own catering service as to ensure that players are being provided with proper diet.Shahbaz Ahmed said jobs should also be provided to players so that they can earn a livelihood.
