The Indian football team is scheduled to fly to Thailand to play in the King’s Cup next month. This tournament is going to be held from September 7 to 10. However, the Football Association of Thailand has yet to announce the matchups and host city. Although the venue has not been announced, naturally the teams are not waiting for this. The preparations of the teams participating in the tournament are started on a serious note. However, Indian football team captain Sunil Chhetri requested head coach Igor Stimach to keep him away from the team for this tournament. The reason is that he is going to be a father very soon. So at this time, he wants to be by his wife’s side.

Sunil Chhetri said, “I am waiting to be a father. I want to be around my wife this time. Because the delivery time is just ahead. It is very important to be by Sonam’s side at this time. I will request the coach not to include me in the King’s Cup team.”
The Indian football team is currently in their dream form. India has formed a strong team around star captain Sunil Chhetri. They have won three consecutive international tournaments this season including Tri-nation, Intercontinental Cup and SAFF Championship. However, Sunil Chhetri has asked for a rest from the King’s Cup because he is going to be a father. Chhetri scored the winning goal during a match against Vanuatu in the SAFF Cup. After scoring a goal in that match, he took the ball inside his jersey and informed everyone about his wife’s pregnancy. It is known that Sunil’s wife Sonam Chhetri’s due date is very close. That is why Captain Sunil wants to remove himself from the Kings Cup.
