New Delhi: Bhaichung Bhutia is hurt at the scornful comments made by former national team manager Pradip Chowdhury but the Indian football captain doesn’t want to engage in a mud-slinging game.
However, in a show of solidarity, his teammates rallied behind the Sikkimese striker scotching reports that has appeared in some quarters about senior players not liking his way of functioning during India’s Asian Cup campaign.
“I don’t want to dignify someone’s (Chowdhury) unnecessary comments. If someone wants to question my commitment towards the national team an
d the game, I can only talk about my on-field achievements,” the Indian captain told.
