Sunil Chettri became only the second Indian footballer, after Bhaichung Bhutia, to play against English Premier League club Manchester United when he took the field for Major League Soccer (MLS) club Kansas City Wizards in a friendly match last week. The 25-year-old striker is also the first Indian player to play for an MLS team , though he is reportedly desperate to leave the club after spending three months on the bench. Chettri has played only one match for the Wizards so far, against MLS club Colorado Rapids, where he was substituted at half time. Despite his match-winning performances for the Indian national team, Chettri has often struggled to find his form at the club level, failing to impress during his stints with both East Bengal and Dempo SC.
