The Indian Hockey players are presently training for Asian Games 2018. However, they don't seem to get the perfect meals at Sports Authority of India, Bangalore centre. A disappointed chief coach Harendra Singh has written to Rajinder Singh, the President of Hockey India, complaining about the poor quality of food served to players.
“...The food quality at Bangalore SAI centre has been well below par for a professional unit. There is excessive oil and fat throughout (in the food), bones with hardly any meat. In some cases, players and staff have found insects, bugs and hair in the food. Hygiene has also been neglected," his letter reads, as reported by Times of India.
