Janneke Schopman resigns as Chief Coach of Indian Women’s Hockey Team

Janneke Schopman, Chief Coach of Indian Women’s Hockey Team, resigned from her post .

The Dutch coach submitted her resignation to Hockey India President Padma Shri Dr Dilip Tirkey after the conclusion of Indian Women’s Hockey Team’s outing in the home leg of the FIH Hockey Pro League in Odisha.

She had taken over the reigns from former Chief Coach Sjoerd Marine under whose tutelage India finished in a historic fourth position at the Tokyo Olympics.
