Once Bruno Coutinho, who was Chapman’s partner, said, ‘I told a friend from Bangalore over the phone that Chapman is no longer with us. He died early today. He was always a happy person and was ready to help others.

Midfielder Chapman played for India from 1995 to 2001. Under his captaincy, the Indian team won the SAF Cup in 1997. At club level, he represented teams like East Bengal and JCT Mills. Chappman, who came out of the Tata Football Academy, joined East Bengal in 1993 and scored a hat-trick in the team’s 6–2 win against Iraqi club Al Javra in the first round of the Asian Cup Winners Cup that year.

But he did his best with JCT to which he was associated in 1995. Chapman won 14 trophies for the Punjab based club. These include the first National Football League (NFL) in 1996–97. He formed a strong combination with IM Vijayan and Bhaichung Bhutia.

Chapman later joined FC Kochi but only joined East Bengal in 1998 after one season. East Bengal won the NFL in 2001 under his leadership. He retired from professional football in 2001. After this, he was also the coach of many different clubs.
