Rohi  |  Awards & Recognition  |  6 Months Ago

India and Bengaluru FC skipper Sunil Chhetri is renowned for his goals and inspiring speeches. He’s someone who’ll leave you pondering and ending up admiring him, but what he’s done in the GQ Men of the Year Award is beyond all of what he’s done before. Chhetri received the Sporting Achievement Of The Year Award at the 2018 GQ Men Of The Year Awards. But, what made news was the funny speech he gave at receiving the award.

Holding the mic after receiving the award given out by fashion magazine GQ, Chhetri said, “I thought I was receiving the award for the way I dress, the way I do stuff out of the pitch, my personality, the way I look.

But now that we’re all convinced, including me, that this award, like all the other awards in my life, is for sports, I’d start by thanking the coaches, the players, the physios, the staff, everyone at the Bengaluru FC and the national team because of whom I won this award and probably all the awards I’ve won before and all the awards I’m going to get.”


Fans, what do you make out of this? 

Does Sunil Chhetri deserve Bharat Ratna?
