Coaches are pretty important for all the players irrespective of whatever sports they play but former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag feels that cricketers don’t give credit to their coaches. It is the coach who recognises and nurtures the talent but very few coaches get famous despite the fact that their students get recognition in the whole world.
It won’t be incorrect to say that every Sachin fan should be thankful to Ramakant Achrekar because he was the man who turned a talented boy into a legend.
While speaking on a book launch on 29th August in Mumbai, Virender Sehwag was surprised to see that Commonwealth and Olympic games are bigger than cricket but still the facilities that the Indian athletes are getting are just 10-20 percent of what cricketers are getting. Despite that, the athletes are working hard and winning medals for the country.
On the matter of not giving credit to the coaches by the cricketers, Viru said that it might be because once the cricketers start playing for the country, they don’t meet or talk to their coaches much and forget them. However in other sports, the players need their coaches from the beginning till the end.
Viru’s friend and former teammate Harbhajan Singh doesn’t seem to agree with Sehwag and he took to the micro-blogging site Twitter to express his opinion.
This is what Bhajji tweeted, “Don’t agree to this.. may be few individuals they don’t give credit to their coaches but few of them they don’t move anywhere without them..guru bina gati nahi”.

Harbhajan wants to say that there is no momentum in a player’s life without the coach.
