During the Trophy Ceremony Ganesan Iyer was standing behind Sunil Chhetri , as the Indian Star posed for photographs Ganesan was found nudging and pushing away Sunil Chhetri to get in the photograph with the trophy.
Indian Sportsmen and Fans Criticize Iyer
The Disgraceful behaviour of La. Ganesan Iyer caused a social media outrage among the sportsmen in the country as they started opposing and criticizing the government and sports fraternity of the country .
Robin Uthappa slammed Ganesan as well by tweeting “ That’s just all sorts of wrong !! Sorry Sunil Chhetri you deserve so much better than this .” Akash Chopra termed the incident as “disgraceful”.
The 6 seconds video just shows that whats wrong with the Sporting Fraternity in India, it looked like Ganesan and the government officials had won the Durand Cup not Sunil Chhetri and Bengaluru Fc.
The Ricky Treatment
After Australia won the 2006 ICC Champions Trophy in Mumbai, captain Rick Ponting had received the Trophy from BCCI President Sharad Pawar. Pawar stood their for the photo but Ponting showed no mercy and told the President to get off the stage as the Aussies wanted to celebrate their victory .
At the time many India fans were outraged with the incident but now the fans have seen the true side of the sporting bodies and governments. Indian Fans wished Chhetri had done a Ricky ponting there but out of respect he gave space to the Governor for the photograph.
