Islamabad: National junior team head coach Sohail Vahedi believes Pakistani players are capable of upsetting any given player, if provided with facilities, round the year coaching and fast snooker tables.
Iranian Sohail, who is current world amateur snooker champion, came here to train top Pakistan junior snooker players. Talking to the media, he said that Pakistani youngsters are very talented, motivated and quick learners, as they pick immediately what is told to them. He was highly pleased to train these talented young guns.
To excel at the top, these juniors need round-the-year training. The most importantly fast tables, as I noticed tables in the PSB Hall are although yet they are a bit slow. When one competes in international events, the tables are very fast, so it disturbs player in the beginning and may cost him the title. He said that he could easily claim three out of these 10 juniors are capable of becoming world champs.
Vahedi said in his opinion, Haris, Saud and Naseem were future prospects for Pakistan and could easily win titles for the country.
To a query, he replied that he would love to come Pakistan again and again, as he really liked the passion and positive response of juniors, as they were very hard working and always ready to deliver.
