BENGALURU, Nov 1: Bengaluru FC captain Sunil Chhetri feels no Indian football club has a three-year history like them and that in itself does all the talking about the giant strides taken by the southern outfit.
In an interview to the aiff.com on Tuesday, the India skipper who scored a brace in Bengaluru FC’s AFC Cup semifinal second leg win against Johor Darul Ta’zim said, “The results should do all the talking and not me.
“Bengaluru FC, in its three years of existence, won two I-League titles, a Federation Cup, made the last 16 in its first year of Asian competition and now we’re in the final of the AFC Cup. I’m not sure if there’s a better three-year record in club football in the country,” the 32-year-old added.
Asked what would be his advice to the younger crop before the AFC Cup final against Iraqi club Al-Quwa Al-Jawiya, Chhetri said, “The stage is big enough for everyone to find motivation from within. Our coach is the one giving out advice and he’s always asked us to be brave and I guess there is no better message than that.” – IANS
