India's foreign coach Achraf El Karargui finally put in his papers yesterday, bringing a pre-mature end to his eventful tenure after developing serious differences with an "unprofessional" Squash Rackets Federation of India (SRFI).
Karargui, who is in Egypt, sent his resignation letter to Sports Authority of India (SAI) via email. "Yes, we have received his resignation, which means he will not be travelling with the team to the Commonwealth Games. There is not much we can do about it," a SAI official said. Earlier, he had already made it clear that won't be able to work anymore with a "high-handed" and "unprofessional" national federation like the SRFI.
The suspense was only about his return for the April 4-15 Commonwealth Games until he had enough. "The SRFI treated me unprofessionally and questioned my decision making more often than not. You can't expect anyone to operate as usual in such a scenario. I want to be there for the players at CWG but it is best for them to go ahead without me as there is too much distraction," Karargui had said.
