Calcutta: A regular at the Figo Foundation versus All Stars match for the last couple of years, Bhaichung Bhutia will give the match a miss this time.
I would not be playing in the match this year in Austria, said Bhutia.
Bhutia, however, was tight-lipped about his ouster from the national team.
I will not comment anything on my omission. I have already conveyed my grievances, said Bhutia on the sidelines of a promotional here, on Sunday.
Bhutia said he wants to become fit and get into the national team fold again.
I have already started training. My immediate priority is to become fit as soon as possible, said Bhutia.
Bhutia said that he was disappointed with his exclusion.
It was disappointing. But I want to work hard and attain fitness before the World Cup qualifiers in July, he said.
