Chhetri targets comeback
He was the number one goalkeeper for India before a slump in form cost him his place in the national hockey team, but former captain Bharat Chetri insists he is not finished yet and there is plenty of fire in his belly to make another comeback.
"I have gone through such a phase many times in my 12 years career, but every time I was dropped it made me more determined. I made successful comebacks every time I was dropped and this is no different," Chetri said.
"I believe in hockey there is no age barrier for goalkeepers. The prime example of the fact is P T Rao, who made his debut for India at the age of 34," he said. Chetri , who will represent Jaypee Punjab Warriors in the HIL, is pinning his hopes on the event to make comeback. "No doubt HIL is an opportunity."
