Baichung Bhutia faced the media in the post-match press conference after the “Audi Football Summit” – the farewell game of the legendary skipper.

Baichung led the Indian team to the pitch for a final time, when India faced German giants FC Bayern Munich at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Delhi [read here].

Here are the press conference quotes:

• I would like to thank Audi for bringing Bayern Munich to India and making them appear in my testimonial match.
• It was a great honour!
• It is great that one of the top European clubs like Bayern Munich played on Indian soil.
• Bayern is one of the best teams in the world.
• I think our players got carried away in the 1st half by the big names playing for Bayern.
• 16 years has been a long journey.
• Thank you Savio, thank you team! I wish the national team good luck under Savio!
