Haryana Steelers, a team that has consistently challenged for the Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) title, enters season 10 with a strong core and an experienced backroom staff. Despite not achieving ultimate success in recent years, the Steelers have made strategic moves to bolster their squad and coaching team.
Experienced Leadership at the Helm:
- Head Coach: Manpreet Singh: The legendary Kabaddi player and coach brings a wealth of experience to the Steelers. With a gold medal at the 2002 and 2006 Asian Games and a PKL title under his belt as coach of Patna Pirates, Manpreet Singh is a proven winner. He has also led the Gujarat Giants to two consecutive PKL finals, demonstrating his ability to ignite a winning spirit. This season, Manpreet Singh will be aiming to translate his vast experience into the Steelers’ maiden PKL championship.
- Assistant Coach: Neer Gulia: A former national Kabaddi player and teammate of Manpreet Singh, Neer Gulia brings valuable expertise to the team. Having worked together at the Gujarat Giants, their strong relationship and shared vision create a cohesive coaching unit. Neer Gulia’s understanding of the game and his ability to motivate players will be crucial in guiding the Steelers towards victory.
Apart from the experienced coaching duo, the Steelers have made strategic acquisitions to strengthen their squad. The capture of Siddharth Desai for a record-breaking INR 1 crore adds a dynamic raider to the team. Veteran Chandran Ranjit provides further depth and experience, while Jaideep Dahiya’s exceptional defensive skills bolster the backline. These strategic moves demonstrate the Steelers’ commitment to building a well-rounded team capable of challenging for the title.
With a blend of experienced leadership, strategic acquisitions, and a talented squad, the Haryana Steelers have positioned themselves for a successful Pro Kabaddi League season. Manpreet Singh’s proven track record and Neer Gulia’s complementary skills create a formidable coaching duo. The team’s strong core and strategic acquisitions further enhance their chances of achieving their ultimate goal – lifting the PKL championship trophy.
