New Delhi: Former India captain Bhaichung Bhutia advised Sunil Chhetri to be "mentally strong" as Chhetri, who will be flying to the Iberian country in another two weeks' time, will be drafted into the club's B side initially. Based on his performance, the club will take a call on whether he should be fast-tracked into the main squad.
"It's a mental thing. It's about how strong you are in mind. He has got the game...but 70 per cent of the game is about mind. He is a confident guy, he has to believe in himself to do well," Bhutia said of his one-time striking partner.
"Whether you sign for B, C or D team, if you perform well there is no limit for it. I think the great thing is that he has got the opportunity to play. If he does well in B, he can move up to A," Bhutia told NDTV.
