I think he would have been better off at QPR in UK, even being 2nd division club its better than crap MLS. He was selected (read: Mittal owning part of QPR) but couldnt get work permit as India dont rank in world top 50 Football ranking. Unfortunate for Sunil.
He may be a capable player, but i dont understand the media hyping his move to US as someone who has made it in the world of club football. It is among the most mediocre in the world, and Beckham was there just for the money 2 yrs back. Even when he went on trials to some lowly club called Queens park last year, Indian media publicises that. And bhutia was a flop at bury, a 3rd division club. No wonder we remain around the 150th mark in world football!I would rather watch genuine international stars like Sachin and Saina anyday

here we are not talking about a ripe fruit. its at the seed nurturing stage stage. Do support rather getting cynical about it as football has way more impact throughout the world than probably any other sports
