Former Australia coach Justin Langer has slammed the coward Australian cricketers. The veteran took charge of the team when Darren Lehmann stepped down following a ball-tampering scandal in South Africa.
Langer won the Ashes and the ICC T20 World Cup as a coach in Oman and the UAE. He was offered a short-term extension which he refused and resigned from his post.
Langer didn’t like how players went behind his back and complained about his intense coaching methods.
“Everyone was nice in front of me, but the stuff I read was shocking. Many journalists wrote sources, but they should have used coward,” Langer said to News Corp media.
“I knew they would not come in front of me and were leaking stuff for their agenda. I hate that,” he added.
Earlier this year, Andrew McDonald replaced Langer as the full-time head coach in April.
