I earn more playing for Bengaluru than Stabaek: Gurpreet
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.
