I earn more play­ing for Bengaluru than Stabaek: Gur­preet

Millennium Post - - SPORT -

BENGALURU: He is the only In­dian to get a start in an Europa League game but the coun­try’s nu­mero uno goal­keeper Gur­preet Singh Sandhu re­vealed that Bengaluru FC pays him much more than what he used to get at Nor­we­gian club Stabaek FC.

“Peo­ple had that per­cep­tion that I was earn­ing more play­ing for the Nor­way club. But it wasn’t the case. I am earn­ing more play­ing In­dian Su­per League,” he said dur­ing an in­ter­ac­tion.

How­ever the gi­gan­tic Pun­jab lad won’t mind if he is paid Rs 17 crore like In­dia cap­tain Vi­rat Kohli, who rep­re­sents city’s cricket fran­chise Rpyal Chal­lengers Ban­ga­lore.

“Whether it’s me or any foot­baller, we would love to get paid as top crick­eters, who get Rs 16-Rs17 crore play­ing IPL,” Gur­preet said.

Gur­preet, how­ever, said he would go back to Euro­pean clubs if it meets his terms and con­di­tions.

“When I went to Europe, I did not set any terms. I only thought of im­prov­ing and de­vel­op­ing my game. Now, I have some in­ter­na­tional ex­po­sure, if I get a chance to play for Euro­pean clubs, I would cer­tainly look for the terms that suits me,” he said.
