Born in Sarabha village in Ludhiana district, 20 year old defender Gursimrat Gill, who started out at the Chandigarh Football Academy is a wonderboy held in high esteem in the Indian Football Cirlce.
Having been with the AIFF academy from U16 to U19, winning the U19 I-League title with the AIFF Elite Academy, Gill is known to be nerveless under pressure.
This trait, which makes him stand out from the crowd, was noticed by the scouts of Italian giant, Inter Milan, during the Nike All Asia camp held at Qatar. Gursimrat, who was among the five Indians sent to the camp where players from countries like China, Korea, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand and Australia trained under coaches from Manchester United, Barcelona and Inter Milan, was keenly watched and his performances analysed by the Serie A team’s scouts. In the end, Gursimrat overcame the cut-throat competition and made it to the final XI in the camp, further enhancing his growing reputation.
Then picked by Bengaluru FC amongst a crop of highly talented youngsters including Daniel and Nishu Kumar, Gursimrat has been ear-marked for a rapid rise in the Indian Football ladder.
He is now a #Highlander.
