Current India captain Sunil Chhetri has upset the All India Football Federation (AIFF) with his remarks backing current national coach Bob Houghton on Twitter.

"The AIFF is extremely perturbed and concerned that national team players are making such unnecessary comments relating to AIFF's functioning and on the issue of coach Bob Houghton as well. The matter will be discussed at AIFF's next Executive Committee meeting and action may be taken, if necessary," general secretary Kushal Das was quoted as saying in a press release. Chhetri refused to react to the charge.

The tweet read, "it ll be a shame if he (Houghton) has to leave… N even worse, we charge him for racism, havnt seen a gentleman like him, leave behind d world class coaching n vast knowledge...sorry bob!"
