NEW DELHI: The All India Football Federation (AIFF) has condoled the demise of former India national team defender Chinmoy Chatterjee, who passed away on Sunday.

He made his senior international debut against Malaysia in 1978 at the Asian Games in Bangkok and went on to represent India in four international matches during his career.

AIFF President Praful Patel, in his condolence message, said: "It is really sad to hear that Mr. Chatterjee is no longer among us. His invaluable contribution to Indian Football will always remain with us. I share the grief."
