Sunil Chhetri, Eugeneson Lyngdoh become 1 cr picks in ISL auction

SUNIL CHETRI  

India football captain Sunil Chhetri and exciting central midfielder Eugeneson Lyngdoh led the bidding war at the first-ever player auction of the Indian Super League (ISL), with both being bought in excess of Rs 1 crore by Mumbai City FC and Pune City FC, respectively, in Mumbai.

 Star striker Chhetri, who missed the first season of ISL as he was not released by his I-League club Bengaluru FC along with other club mates, was bought for Rs 1.2 crore by Mumbai City FC, Rs 40 lakh over and above his base price of Rs 80 lakh, in a surprisingly low-key bidding involving only two out of the eight teams - Mumbai City FC and Delhi Dynamos.
