Manjeet Sharma, a raider for Dabang Delhi KC, had been a kabaddi player by trade. He played for a few years before giving up in 1995, but he always wanted his son to play professional kabaddi.

Manjeet has been one of the key raiders for Dabang Delhi KC in the Pro Kabaddi League. In season eight, he and Delhi took home the championship. In his PKL career, he has scored 115 points thus far.

Manjeet talked exclusively with Sportskeeda about his experience playing kabaddi. He spoke about how it was his father’s dream that he has fulfilled. He said, “My father used to play kabaddi. He was a good player, but he quit the sport. When I was young, my father would take me to the ground. I used to watch Joginder Narwal, who is our assistant coach, play. So, I started playing kabaddi. It was my father’s dream that I play kabaddi. I did not deny him.”

The raider spoke about his idol in the Pro Kabaddi league. He said, “Joginder Narwal is from my village only. He is like an elder brother. He is my coach now. Pardeep Narwal, Vijay Malik, Kuldeep Singh, Surjeet Narwal, our team’s captain Naveen Kumar and many other players.”

The superstar discussed the recent game versus U Mumba as he said, “See, there was pressure. They got the lead, then we got the lead. At half time, the team sat down and had a chat with the coach. Coach sir told us to play smart kabaddi. U Mumba players played aggressively in the second half, so coach sir told me not to go deep into their half. I avoided going deep into their half and tempted the defenders. Whatever coach sir said, I followed that.”

Manjeet Sharma also discussed his close relationship with captain Ashu Malik. He said, “No, there’s nothing like that. Nothing will change our friendship. It’s just that he has got a new role now.”
