As per report in the Press Trust of India, former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly on Sunday said that Virender Sehwag spoke foolishly on the offer of a coaching job for Indian Cricket team.

However, Ganguly himself denied the quote by saying that his quote on Sehwag is completely false and clarified that Sehwag is very dear to him.

“My quote on Sehwag completely false ..right quote ..Sehwag very dear to me. Will speak to him soon ..,” said Ganguly in a tweet.

Earlier, Sehwag said the he did not land up at coaching position because of lack of setting.

“I couldn’t become the India coach because I didn’t have any setting with those who were in power of appointing the coach,” said Sehwag.

“I never thought of coaching the Indian cricket team. I was given an offer to coach the team. The BCCI (acting) secretary Amitabh Chaudhary and GM (Game Development) MV Sridhar came to me and requested me to think about the offer. I took my time and then applied for the position,” he added.
