Pezzaiuoli on Sunil Chhetri low pace in ISL: He is also a human

In the ongoing Indian Super League season, Indian football team captain Sunil Chhetri has not scored a goal in six matches so far but his team Bengaluru FC head coach Marco Pezzaiuoli is not tense about the charismatic player’s pace. Pezzaiuoli supported him stating that Chhetri is also a human being and it is a difficult time for him but the team is supporting its captain.

After their 1-2 loss against FC Goa on Saturday, Pezzaiuoli said: “He (Chhetri) is also a human. Sometimes you are not lucky. He got lucky with the national team and the ball was always with him. He scored five goals there.” 

The coach continued, “It’s a difficult time. He has got the support of the team and the way he has performed for the team has been phenomenal. He needs more luck inside the box (near the opposing team’s goal post). He is working very hard and you will see the result soon.

Chhetri needs just two goals to become the highest goalscorer of the ISL. This season he missed to convert a penalty twice. Even against FC Goa on Saturday, which is noted to be his 100th match in the ISL, he failed to capitalize on an easy opportunity. Pezzaiuoli said, “He had a great chance in this match, usually on such occasions he scores a goal even with his eyes closed.”

The coach replied to the question if the team is looking at any player as a replacement for Chhetri in the playing XI, “I don’t think we should talk much about Sunil. I don’t exclude any one player. We have lost matches as a team and I think that is more important.”

This Bangalore team had to face defeat in four of the first six matches. Bengaluru FC is in 10th position in the table of 11 teams. The team has to play the next match against ATK Mohun Bagan on 16 December.
