Mumbai, Sep 27: Gujarat Giants head coach Ram Mehar Singh is optimistic about his team's good show in the upcoming Pro Kabaddi League season 9 but the 2017 PKL-winning coach reckons he would focus on the process instead of worrying about the results.
For PKL 2022, Ram Mehar Singh has embarked on a new journey as the Head Coach of the Gujarat Giants. Speaking ahead of the tournament, slated to begin on October 7 in Bengaluru, the Head Coach said, "We will look to give our best and not focus on the results. If we think about the results too much, then we will stumble. If we are physically and mentally strong, we will garner the required results. The competition level is going to be quite high in PKL as usual. Let's see how we perform in the tournament."
He further expressed that the team is focussing on the technical aspect of the game in the lead-up to the tournament, "Our preparations are going on well for the tournament. During a long coaching camp, we have focused on improving our endurance, strength, speed and agility. We are also working on team coordination. We are done with most of our preparations with regards to physical training and now we are focusing on the technical aspects of the game."
Singh stressed the fact that a player is required to be skilful in multiple facets of the game to be successful in PKL, "It's important for players to be good at multiple facets of the game & have different skills in his repertoire. If a player is good at only one skill, then he will be found wanting on the mat. The one who is skilled at several aspects of the game is the one who will attain success."
When asked about his strategy for the season, he said, "There are no shortcuts in any field. If we work hard diligently towards our goal with determination, we can achieve anything. This is my mantra. Right now, we are devising our tactics for the competition and we will be ready with all our plans before the season starts."
