The All India Football Federation (AIFF) released a press statement today stating that the federation has taken “strong exception” to Sunil Chhetri’s remarks against the National Federation on the issue of Nation Team Coach Bob Houghton via twitter. AIFF General Secretary Kushal Das condemned Chhetri’s statement and said, “The AIFF is extremely perturbed and concerned that National Team players are making such unnecessary comments relating to AIFF’s functioning and on the issue of coach Bob Houghton as well.”“The matter will certainly be discussed at AIFF’s next Executive Committee meeting and action may be taken, if necessary.”

Sunil Chhetri has been at the center of the support Bob Houghton enjoys with the National players and staff and his outburst condemning the AIFF has not gone unnoticed by the authorities.
