Narayanan chuan “Bhaichung Bhutia invited me to this event and I am happy to be here as I have been a big football fan. It’s a pity that Bhaichung couldn’t make it but we have Sunil Chhetri, who is the future of Indian football. I think football in India has lost it’s sheen and I believe events like this awards night will encourage youngsters. Football and Hockey are the two most important sports but sadly they don’t get enough sponsors. Cricket is not a game anymore and is more of a craze. I request all sponsors to come forward and help hockey and football also. I wish FPAI all the very best and the awards night a huge success.” tiin a sawi.
