Former Aussie coach reveals that few players acted like cowards during his tenure

Former Australia coach Justin Langer has termed some of the national team players as ‘cowards’, saying they behaved well in front of him but used to leak dressing room gossip behind his back.  The 52-year-old Langer, who led Australia to a 4-0 Ashes win at home and last year’s T20 World Cup title, quit as head coach in February this year after Cricket Australia decided not to extend his contract.

 Langer’s coaching style was criticized by senior Australian players such as Aaron Finch, Pat Cummins and former Test captain Tim Paine.  According to News Corp Media, Langer said, ‘Everyone behaved well in front of me, but I was reading something else in the newspapers.  I swear to God and my children that I could not believe what the newspapers were writing.  Many journalists were citing sources.  I would say that this word should be changed to coward.

 He said, ‘Because what does ‘sources said’ mean.  Either they are doing this to take revenge on someone and are afraid to say it in front of you or they are doing this to take their agenda forward.  I hate all these things. Prior to the T20 World Cup, there were several reports of discontent in the dressing room due to Langer’s coaching style.
