Speaking about former India captain MS Dhoni, Indian football team striker Jeje Lalpekhlua said that the former cricket captain was quite good at football as well.
Jeje has been an integral part of Chennaiyin FC in the Indian Super League (ISL).
A day after Dhoni announced his international retirement, Jeje preferred to take a trip down memory lane and spoke about the training sessions where the former Indian captain would join them for a training session.
“He just loves to play football. If he is around, whenever we’re playing a small-sided game during training, he’d always try to join us,” reported IANS quoting the footballer from Mizoram.
“Of course, he played football when he was a kid and you can gauge how much he still enjoys playing even now. He was always so good with the ball at his feet,” Jeje added.
“He may have been a goalkeeper back in school. But when he was playing, it has been evident that his skills with his feet have not left him,” Jeje further said.
“He’s quite good at football, to be honest,” he added.
