Sunil Chhetri is the leader of the Indian football team. He & his team won the 2023 Bangabandhu SAFF Championship last week in Bengaluru. But the 38-year-old modestly thanks everyone who has given him and the team assistance, praise, and inspiration.

While acknowledging a good shift in fans’ perceptions of Indian football, Chhetri stresses the need for both the squad and the supporters to maintain their sincerity and caution. Sunil Said,

“It has been great, the support, right from day 1 (of the tournament). On the pitch, the way fans were and encouraged us throughout the game was something special and something magical. Also, the fact that Kuwait and Lebanon—who were India’s opponents in the final and the semi-finals, respectively—are not exactly SAFF teams. They were invited, and they are really good quality sides. So beating them, competitions like them, also felt great,”

He added,

“There was never a problem with the match-going fans, but yes, there has been an increase in the number of people who have started talking about football, and I think that’s a really good thing. I can sense the atmosphere is changing. But at the same time, I know we have jumped up a few ranks, we still have a long way to go. We have to just keep up the good work and stay focused on where we want to reach now,”

Sunil Chhetri On Messi and Ronaldo:

Sunil Chhetri wants to do well at the next Asian Cup.

“The Asian Cup is like the World Cup for us. It is right at the very top of our list, and therefore, performing our best there is paramount. I don’t mean to put this pressure on the boys, but we should be qualifying for the Asian Cup every time,” added Sunil Chhetri.

Chettri added,

“Right now, international football is such that no one knows what will happen, and underdogs, too, can win! You just never know what is going to happen in football. That’s why we have to give our best, and that’s a message I am trying to send to the rest of the team,”

He served as the leader for more than ten years and is undoubtedly among the most accomplished captains in history. His individual team metrics demonstrate how well he has been directing the club. In the top 10 list of all-time goal strikers for their national squads, Chhetri is included alongside Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. Sunil stated.

“There’s no comparison with the rest of the nine names on the list. I mean, I am a fan of players like Ronaldo and Messi, just like so many other fans of them. There’s just no comparison, and I don’t take this list, or whatever this list is, too seriously. But, yes, when it comes to representing the national team, I can be even better than them,”
