No Idea after Retirement

Sunil Chhetri has no idea how his life will be after playing his last game for the nation. He plans on taking a short break before beginning his the pre season camp for Bengaluru FC.

“I honestly have no idea how my life will be this game. There have been a couple of matches which I didn’t play when I was injured. It was a sort of a jittery feeling,” said India skipper Sunil Chhetri in a media interaction.

Plenty of options in Attack

The Indian skipper has claimed that there are plenty of players who will fight for the coveted number 9 spot in the team. He has full courage on his players and the younger generation to strike hard and play with passion.

There will be a lot of fight for different positions. There are many who don’t play as number 9 in ISL, but in due course of time it changes. There are a lot of attacking players like Liston, Manvir, Sahal, Bipin, Vikram Pratap and Chhangte. I hope the team the gels well,” he added.

“There are lot of attacking players who are doing well. The two best team who played the ISL Finals, have a lot of Indians who are playing well. The hunger, the talent and the desire is there,” Chhetri concluded.
