Former India coach Jose Brasa on Wednesday said that the World Series Hockey would boost the game in India and nobody should punish players and coaches for taking part in the $2million league starting December 17.
“I have the freedom to take part and I do not think any law supports any association or international federation to ban any player or coach because of their participation here. After all, this is not part and parcel of any qualification for Asian or Champions Trophy and the players do not represent their nation in this tournament. It is just a franchise competition,” Brasa said.
“Therefore nobody should interfere in players, coaches and officials decision to figure in the series.”
