On asking about his football love and owning a team he said, Cricket, for starters, has out priced itself. The game has reached a saturation point [in India]. I don’t know if anyone should go there (buy a cricket team). Maybe I will think about it (buying another sports team) if an interesting offer comes up. But, right now, it’s all about Football for me.

I played Cricket, too. And I enjoyed it. But I just loved Football more. Look, Football is a more active sport. On an average, a player runs about 9 km every game. It’s amazing to just run around. In school, I was one of those students who would be covered with mud after the lunch break. Cricket never caught my fancy. It’s always been Football. And today, I am realizing my dream through whatever little I am doing in Football.

He recently met Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama and said that this was the “closest” he has got to spirituality. John on Wednesday shared a photograph of himself along with the Buddhist monk.

“The closest that I’ve ever got to spirituality has been in the presence of His Holiness the Dalai Lama,” John captioned the image.
