Sunil Chhetri joins Churchill Brothers

Indian football team captain, Sunil Chhetri has taken a break from his foreign stint as I-League club Churchill Brothers signed the striker on loan from Sporting Lisbon for four months. The club wanted to have Chettri last year itself but he had already committed himself to Sporting Lisbon's B team in the second division Portuguese league. Chhetri is currently with the national team in Pune, preparing for next month's AFC Challenge Cup. He is expected to join Churchill early next week, along with three other players, for the team's AFC Cup clash against Kitchee FC on February 26. "These signings will certainly strengthen our defence as well as our attack as they prepare for the final stretch of matches in the I-League and the AFC Cup group stages," said a Churchill Brothers official.
