What Sunil Chhetri said

“Our country is going through difficult times. The pain, suffering, loss all around us is depressing and tragic. Amidst all of this, there are so many of us who have come forward and helped – helped each other and helped complete strangers,” the 36-year-old continued.

“Guys, we all need to participate. No matter who you are, help in whichever way you can. Among all these people, there are some real-life captains who are doing some extraordinary, phenomenal work. You give me hope. You give me a lot of motivation. And I want to join.”

How Chhetri wants to help

The former East Bengal and Mohun Bagan forward has offered select personnel access to his own social media handle onTwitter in order to spread vital information to those who may be in distress and in dire need of assistance.

“I want to give access to my Twitter account to a few of these captains so that their important information can be amplified and can reach as many as possible. Guys, I’m on your team,” said the Arjuna Awardee and Padma Shri award winner.
