Shanmugam Venkatesh  says Sandesh Jhingan is a big fighter and leader at back

The former Indian international and current Indian senior men’s team assistant coach  Shanmugam Venkatesh took part in an official Indian football’s Instagram handle and shared his opinion and future plan of the Indian team.

Shanmugam Venkatesh  says they are slowly improving well

“In 94-95, most of the India camp players, they used to travel in the train to the camp. Until ‘97 or ‘98, it was the case. I started in ‘97. After 2000, in terms of facility-wise, we started getting more. Slowly, we were improving. Another important thing is that the knowledge of professional players was quite less then. The players were receiving less knowledge,” Shanmugam Venkatesh told in Indian Football Official Instagram Handel.

Shanmugam Venkatesh  says Vikram Pratap is very professional player

“My advice to any youngster watching Sunil, Sandesh (Jhingan) is that observe what they are doing and there is a long way to go. We have to provide young players confidence. Ofcourse, Vikram Pratap is a great player, has a great attitude, he is a team player, has tremendous stamina and is a very professional player. My advice as a coach is that they (young players) work every day.”

Shanmugam Venkatesh  says Sunil Chettri is one who is comfortable with both feet

“We played together for India. He played under my captaincy. The beauty of Sunil is that he is very comfortable with both feet. Everyone knows that he is a great goalscorer, but Sunil is the only player I have seen who is comfortable with both feet.”

Shanmugam Venkatesh  says Sandesh Jhingan is a big fighter and leader at back

“Firstly, whatever Sandesh is, it is due to his hard work. He is a fighter. We need players like Sandesh on the field. Sandesh has to go out and play in a foreign league. My advice to Sandesh is that he is ready to play outside India. This is the right time for Sandesh. He is very committed and wants to play all the games. He is a big fighter and leader at the back,” Shanmugam Venkatesh concluded.
