This is what had happened :
Indian National Team: N.P.Pradeep And Joaquim Abranches Fail To Learn Lessons From Sunil Chhetri’s Tweet Saga
Bob Houghton was one of the most loved and respected coaches amongst the players’ fraternity and when the decision of resignation became public on Saturday afternoon, several Indian national team players expressed their rage over the way the issue was handled by the All India Football Federation (AIFF).
As Goal.com had mentioned a few days back before Houghton’s putting in his papers as India coach, the Indian FA and the Englishman reached an agreement wherein all the charges, including that of racism were dropped by the AIFF in return for the resignation letter.
Amongst those chagrined by the whole affair were N.P.Pradeep and Joaquim Abranches and the duo didn’t make any efforts to curb their instincts.
The Viva Kerala playmaker used foul language to describe the behavior of AIFF officials.
“F**K you AIFF" and "F****** AIFF officials" were the precise words used by the 2007 Nehru Cup hero and only after being intimated by an official from the I-League department of the Indian FA that the Kerala player eventually deleted his comment from Facebook. It even egged on a few fans to follow suit as they praised him for voicing his thoughts against the AIFF.
It was in the past week that the AIFF had show caused Sunil Chhetri for his tweet where he seemingly criticized the actions of those in power.

let me make things clear. we(at least me) are not showing sympathy towards AIFF. I m protesting the immoral behaviour of NP Pradeep. A man at his position shud speak responsibly.
