LONDON: Pakistan team manager Yawar Saeed put their future in the hands of the chairman of the PCB Ijaz stop on Tuesday and said he had no intention of resigning after a UK tour tarnished by allegations of corruption.
Saeed, has been at the center of a media storm after three players were suspended for newspaper articles of the spot of attachment, has denied that he knew or should resign.
I am not resigned, I will not resign and I am not going to resign, he told Sky Sports News television Wednesday before deciding one-day international against England in Southampton.
I am person of very little importance, do not know why people are so interested. I’m not an administrator.
I am not employed by the PCB (Pakistan Cricket Board). So if you’re not working, what give? The air? I did not resign, he said.
“The procedure is, after every tour the chairman then will decide who is the manager for the next tour. So it’s his domain.”
Saeed would not comment on Butt’s remarks at the weekend which triggered a further outcry when he suggested that some English players “were paid enormous amounts of money” to lose Friday’s third one-dayer.
“I am not responsible for the chairman’s comments,” said the manager, adding that he was focused on his players’ preparations.
“Because it’s a decider, because of what is going on, they are determined to win. And we shall play good cricket and try to win this game,” declared Saeed.
