Sunil Chhetri was insulted after winning Durand Cup 2022, VIDEO Viral.
Bengaluru FC beat Mumbai City FC 2-1 to win their maiden Durand Cup football tournament title at the Salt Lake Stadium on Sunday (September 18).
This is also the first Durand Cup title for Bengaluru FC’s charismatic captain Sunil Chhetri, but he has been humiliated after winning the title, the video of which is going viral on social media.
It is no secret that cricket is the number one sport in India and nothing even comes close to the popularity and fantasy of the sport.
Other sports are still struggling to make their way. The Sunil Chhetri-led Indian football team has improved in recent times and a lot of credit goes to the captain.
Sunil Chhetri has not only been an inspiration to billions of people, but he has also helped in increasing the popularity of the sport in the country.
Despite this, what happened at the Salt Lake Stadium on Sunday after the Durand Cup final is very sad.
