“Sachin Tendulkar and Mahendra Singh Dhoni are two of my favourite players. They are role models for all those who want to achieve something in style. I am sure the cricketers here inspire young kids and I hope the same will also happen with football in the country,” said the former defender.



The 48-year-old is hooked to the sport. “I have been following cricket for a long time now. I think it’s a wonderful sport.”



On his maiden visit to the country, Gary said there wasn’t enough time to explore much. “To be honest, it has been just one day, so I haven’t really explored much. However, the drive from the airport to the hotel gave me a brief idea about the city, the roads, the weather and everything. It was wonderful to meet all the new people here; they are so welcoming and so warm,” he said, also confessing to not having tried Indian food till the time of this interview.



“Would you believe it, I come to India from so far and I have Chinese food? But hey, before I leave the country, I will definitely try it out,” he promised.
