The Red and Gold fans could be set in for a surprise as the legend of Indian football and the all time top scorer of East Bengal Football Club, our very own Bhaichung Bhutia could be seen donning the Red and Gold kit once again and take the field.
As per sources, the AIFF is set to start the inaugural Futsal League of the country and has asked the ISL and I-League clubs to send in representations for the tournament. It is being said that there won’t be any age limit to the Futsal League as ex-players too can take the field to bring in the crowd for the amazing experience.
It is also being reported that the first ever Futsal tournament could take place at the Mecca of Indian football, Kolkata. All the big Kolkata clubs have been approached to send their teams for the tournament.
Bhaichung Bhutia along with few other names could certainly represent the Red and Gold brigade in the tournament as per sources. However, the club is yet to decide on the participation in the Futsal League as of now. Bhaichung Bhutia himself too told the media that all depends on if he is fit enough to take the field.
Taking the positives from the reports, we can surely say the fans could be in for a treat and experience the legends of the game once again if things go according to plans. After all, watching Bhaichung Bhutia in the Red and Gold kit has been the childhood of thousands of fans who have been watching Indian football since the 90s and early 2000s.
