The confusion about Mohammad Saifuddin
Enamul Haque, the Head Coach of Abahani, defended his club and claimed they didn’t force the all-rounder to be in ht squad, “Earlier we used to tape that area but now he does not need that. The only thing is that he is having a problem with his throwing and as a result, we have decided to keep him inside the 30-yard circle.”
Khaled Mahmud, former national head Coach, couldn’t find the necessity for an operation, “I don’t think he needs an operation. He is doing gym and weight training and probably will recover though it. I am not sure regarding the depth of his injury but I don’t think it is too serious.”
Mohammad Saifuddin is feeling confused about the created drama of his fitness, “To be honest, I am not thinking about the World Cup. I am concentrating on the DPL right now. When I get the World Cup ticket after the announcement of the squad I will think about it.”
