Coaching or family time? What is Sunil Chhetri planning to do after his retirement match vs Kuwait?

Sunil Chhetri plays his last international game against Kuwait, which will be played in Kolkata on June 6.

Sunil Chhetri, the legendary Indian footballer, hangs up his boots for the national team after their upcoming World Cup qualifier match against Kuwait. The 39-year-old, who has redefined Indian football, is ready to celebrate his retirement in a unique way. But what exactly does Chhetri have planned?

Not coaching for Chhetri but guess what?

The answer might surprise you. After years of disciplined eating to maintain peak fitness, Chhetri is ready to indulge. “Food. Oh man, when I retire, I’m going to smash all of them!” he declared to fifa.com. For five to ten glorious days, the regimented diet will be a distant memory.

But what exactly is on the menu for this celebratory feast? Chhetri has his sights set on a classic Indian comfort food – Aloo Paratha (a kind of flatbread stuffed with a potato filing). “I’m going for everything but especially the Indian dish of Aloo Paratha.”

Let’s rewind a bit. Maintaining a strict diet is an essential part of a professional athlete’s life. Throughout his long and illustrious career, Chhetri has been meticulous about his food choices. Every meal was carefully planned to provide the perfect balance of nutrients to fuel his body and optimize his performance on the field. This dedication to a healthy diet has undoubtedly a major reason in him being at the top of the game for almost two decades.

Now, with his playing days coming to an end, Chhetri is ready to loosen the reins a bit and enjoy some of the delicious foods he may have had to restrict before.
