Indian Arrows coach Luis Norton de Matos is livid with U-17 World Cupper Dheeraj Singh for deciding to trial for a Scottish club, calling it a wrong career move instigated by agents, who don't understand what is important for the development of a youngster. Norton is coaching the AIFF developmental side which comprises mostly of U-17 World Cuppers and U-19 India players. Dheeraj has decided to try for Scotland's Motherwell FC.

"At this level, around the players, there are a lot of people, agents and most of the times, these people don't know or don't understand what is important for development of a player," De Matos said. "I don't think it is the best decision for his career. I will be happy if I am proved wrong," said De Matos who didn't mince words about what he felt about U-17 World Cup goalkeeper's career choice.
