Among other updates today on Indian football players, Anirudh Thapa may leave Chennaiyin FC despite only recently assuming captaincy there.
After a running up poor stint last season, Chennaiyin FC management roped in Montenegrin head coach Bozider Bandovic this season.
And since his arrival, the CFC management has taken many new, interesting directions in the ongoing Indian Super League 2021-22.
One of them is appointing Anirudh Thapa to be the captain of the Marina Machans. And to Thapa’s credit, at the moment, this decision is proving to be best for the Indian international and CFC.
But Chennaiyin captain Anirudh Thapa has also had a very topsy turvy season last year, mostly due to injuries. Still, after recovering from these injuries, the Indian international improved his game in the latter part of the 2020-21 season.
Indian Football Players – Anirudh Thapa May Leave Chennaiyin FC
Now, in this season, Anirudh Thapa started off with the same momentum and also with the added captain’s responsibility. And instead of crumbling under this pressure, the midfielder now looks to be evolving onto a whole different skill level.
His never-ending energy in the midfield and late runs in the box are proving to be dangerous for ISL opponents. Plus, Thapa’s skills on the ball have been one of the best in India making his impact on Chennaiyin impeccable.
Overall, therefore, Chennaiyin captain Anirudh Thapa has been one of the best players in the Indian Super League this season.
And with such humungous performances in his back, Thapa has piqued many rival clubs’ radars for the upcoming season.
Indeed, the Bridge, in football today, have exclusively touted that three ISL sides have shown a proper interest for Thapa.
ATK Mohun Bagan’s interest in Thapa is a long-time affair as they tried and failed to sign him last season.
Second in the race for the versatile midfielder are Mumbai City FC, the defending champions of ISL 2020-21.
Surprisingly the third team that has shown great interest in signing Aniruddh Thapa is Odisha FC.
However, Chennaiyin’s “Wonderkid” has only recently hinted that he will stay with the club for many years to come. So, if something drastic doesn’t happen, Thapa, who is now a seasoned star, will probably remain as a Chennaiyin player.
