Speaking to India's Outlook magazine in the aftermath of reports last week that Greg Chappell had asked Sourav Ganguly to step down as India's captain, Tendulkar expressed the view that such conversations should remain private.
"It's difficult for me to speak on the issue. But such talks should not come out of the dressing-room and if it comes out then it's not right. Dressing-room discussions should remain within the dressing-room only," he told the magazine. "[The Indian board] should speak to the players after they come back. We would get the real story once they talk to the officials [after returning home]."
Tendulkar, who is recovering from surgery on his elbow, has to inform the Indian board on Wednesday if he is fit to play in next month's ICC Super Series.
