Sunil Chhetri, 32, has played for continuous four seasons in Bengaluru FC, being the highest scorer of the season for his team every year. Bengaluru FC have retained the services of Sunil Chhetri and Udanta Singh for the next three years ahead of their debut season in the Indian Super League.
“We are thrilled at being able to retain the present and the future of Indian football in Sunil and Udanta. The two of them have been immense for Bengaluru FC and will be vital cogs in our wheel as we take on the challenge of rebuilding the club for what will be a tough season ahead,” said club CEO Parth Jindal. Sunil Chhetri has had numerous memories with the Bangalore based club and has a special place in every fan’s heart. Sunil Chhetri also reverted to the fans in the most “bromantic” way on being retained by the club till 2020.

There is something about the Bengaluru fans and their energy that makes it for a beautiful narrative that the best player in the country plays in front of the craziest fans, the West Block Blues!
