“As a coach, I am always happy to see my players progressing to the next level of their careers. It gives me the pleasure and satisfaction to see a player who has passed through my hands get offers from a team in a better league and offers a better package. We should develop the culture of celebrating when our players leave for a greener pastures,” he said.
