Staying inside a bio bubble 'isn't easy' but India football captain Sunil Chhetri is bracing up for the upcoming Indian Super League in earnest, doing all it takes for a successful campaign with his franchise Bengaluru FC.

From doing double training sessions and reading books, to watching renowned broadcaster and historian Sir David Attenborough's documentary A Life On Our Planet, the 36-year-old has been one busy man through the last three weeks of the team's quarantine in Goa.


‘This is our third week inside the bio bubble and I must confess it isn't easy but, of course, needed,’ Chhetri said in a video on his Twitter handle.

‘We are doing double time session and we are trying our best as a team to be as fit as possible before the tournament starts. It's just 10 days left and I am pretty sure all of you are waiting for the ISL as I am and the whole team is.’

The franchise-based football league starts in Goa on November 20 with a game between ATK Mohun Bagan and Kerala Blasters.

The seventh edition of the tournament will be held in three venues across Goa owing to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Chhetri lead former champions Bengaluru FC in the upcoming edition of the ISL.

Bengaluru FC, known for a professional setup since its arrival on the big stage not too long ago, won the tournament in 2018.
