Bhaichung Bhutia wants ‘good exposure’ for future Indian players

Former India skipper Bhaichung Bhutia believes new players in the country should get the right exposure. Not only that, but he also went on to say that the northeast region of the country, where she too hails from, has a lot of sporting talent that should be harnessed.

“The football scenario in India is changing a lot and there are a lot more opportunities. We have to make sure the players get the right exposure,” Bhutia told PTI on the sidelines of the inauguration of the Bhaichung Bhutia Football School at Assam Riffles Public School.

“For us, the NE region is where the talent is. It’s important to create a center here. We plan to promote and support a lot of players,” he said. Recalling his teenage years, Bhutia said there were no official training centers and he was lucky to have been spotted at a game and taken by SAI.

Bhutia said: “We have to make sure the players get the right exposure. At BBFS, we try our best. My own son is registered as a boarder at BBFS-Gurgaon. He is 12 years old. I have been giving him the exposure since that he wanted to play football.” Assam Rifles Managing Director, Lt. Gen. Pradeep Chandran Nair said, “North East India is a true sporting powerhouse and has produced notable sportsmen including Olympic medalists. The talent of the local youth towards football is the way forward for the future of Indian football. “
