Sunil Chetri and Baichung Bhutia, the two icons of Indian Football, reacted with disappointment and shock to Bob Houghton’s resignation last night. Bhutia was distressed by the news and called Houghton the “best coach he had worked under”. He also stated that the allegations of racism leveled against Bob Houghton were completely baseless.

Bhutia believes whoever comes in next to become the Head Coach of the Indian Football team will have a hard time stepping into Bob Houghton’s shoes because of the success enjoyed under him.

Bob Houghton resigned on Saturday evening, ending a 5 year tenure which brought India 3 trophies and put them back on the Asian stage by playing in the AFC Asia Cup after 27 years.
