Kolkata, March 11 (IANS) India’s star footballer Sunil Chhetri Friday lamented the lack of proper training facilities and infrastructure in the country.
Speaking on the sidelines of a bike launch function in the city, Chetri said: “Middle East countries and other Asian countries have good grounds. The training facilities there are superb. But in India proper training facilities are a luxury.
“We are expected to compete at the highest level but then where are the facilities,” he asked.
“There is no dearth of talent in our country but we need to nurture them well. But sadly enough we lack the proper system required for their nurturing,” Chetri told mediapersons.
India are currently ranked 145th in the FIFA rankings.
