Kolkata: The Madhya Pradesh government has
offered land to India captain Bhaichung Bhutia to fulfill his
dream of having a football academy.

"Madhya Pradesh government is offering me 30 acres of
land. I don`t know where it is but I am busy with football and
other things. So It`s difficult for me to go there at the
moment and finalise the details," Bhutia said today on the
sidelines of a promotional event.

Bhutia, who is also the president of the Football Players
Association of India, was looking for a land for his dream
academy and recently met the West Bengal Sports Minister Kanti
Ganguly.

"I am still looking at it and have not yet finalised
anything. I am really not focused on this at the moment as we
are busy playing," he said.
