"Right now, we are in the middle of competition, and will think about it later," Yannick Colaco, CEO, Nimbus Sports, told HT from Mumbai.
While Colaco refused to divulge the details of the contract, the duo, like several other top players, had received an initial payment after signing the agreement in December. It is learnt that while Shivendra received Rs. 90,000, Tushar got Rs. 63,000.
When contacted, Shivendra, camping in Bangalore in preparation for the London Games, said since he was a part of the national team, he couldn't play the league and had returned the money. "There's nothing like representing the country in the Olympics," he added.
