Where’s Doutie? Peeved Jamshedpur FC winger checks out of hotel without informing team management

Irked at not getting more game time, the South African checked in at another hotel even as his teammates searched for him all night.

Indian Super League newcomers Jamshedpur FC faced a tough time while dealing with winger Sameehg Doutie, who checked in at another hotel in Delhi without informing the team management on Thursday.

The South African winger was apparently irked at not getting more playing time during Jamshedpur’s 1-0 win over Delhi Daynamos on Wednesday.

Debutants Jamshedpur notched up their maiden win of the ISL while also scoring their first goal after three goal-less draws. In the match, Doutie was brought on in the 90th minute by head coach Steve Coppell and the South African was apparently not happy with that.

It is learnt that Doutie, on reaching the team hotel last night, moved out on his own without telling anybody. He then checked in at another hotel while his team-mates and support staff were searching for him all night.

“Doutie kept quiet inside the team bus all through the journey from the stadium to the hotel. Once he reached the hotel, he must have left the hotel without informing anybody and all his team-mates and support staff were searching for him all night but could not find him,” a source in the team told PTI.

“The team was about to leave for Jamshedpur in the morning (today) and by that time it was learnt he had checked in at a hotel near the airport. The team management tried to contact him but he was incommunicado,” the source added.

It is learnt that the club is on the verge of releasing him.

“It is a clear case of Doutie falling out with the team management. The club will release him very soon. His behaviour has shown that he is no longer interested to be with the team,” the team source said.

Doutie played for Atletico de Kolkata in the previous seasons and was a major signing for Jamshedpur this season. He has played in Jamshedpur’s all three earlier matches and has enjoyed a good season so far.

A phone so stunning that it deserves its own photoshoot

Presenting the Moto X4, crafted to perfection.

The light reveals the fluidity of its body; curves that fit perfectly in the contours of a palm.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
