Claims made by Goal.com do not have backing from FIFA or club officials. The narrative has not been picked up by any mainstream media either.

On May 21, 2020, Kerala Blasters announced they had parted ways with Jhingan on mutual consent.
Goal.com has reported that Kerala Blasters claimed compensation from FIFA for Sandesh Jhingan's injury and received an amount of 70 Lakhs for his recovery. The article claims that the club has used FIFA's Club Protection Programme(CPP) and filed a claim request within 28 days from the injury incident date, as per the FIFA mandate. It is mentioned that the club has received the first installment of their compensation a year later, and it is the first Indian club to avail themselves of this benefit.
