India football captain Sunil Chhetri was all set to sign a deal with Goan club Churchill Brothers in 2013 but his “gut feeling” prompted him to join Bengaluru FC, where he won eight trophies in the last eight years.The 36-year-old Chhetri said the lure of playing in the AFC Cup and advice from his family and friends to join Churchill was tempting but ultimately he didn’t join the Goan club.Everything told me to sign for Churchill Brothers (in 2013). I-League champions, renowned name, going to play in AFC Cup. On the other hand, (Bengaluru FC) new club and don’t know who are going to be signed, may or may not work, so it was a gamble I took,” Chhetri said.
