New Delhi:

Heroes in Indian sports often have to put up with shabby treatment. On Friday, Indian Hockey Federation (IHF) President KPS Gill was at his rudest best when talking about Dhanraj Pillay. And East Bengal it seems is being fairly nasty to Baichung Bhutia. The 29-year old Indian skipper said that he felt 'sad' at the way East Bengal reacted to his request that they clear his dues for last year. He has now decided to try and play for a Malaysian club. The talented player will leave for Malaysia next week for a two to three month stint in that country. Bhutia, who had a three-year stint with English professional outfit Bury FC, also spent several months donning the jersey of Malaysian outfit Perak FC in 2004.
