Former Indian Captain Bhaichung Bhutia has written to the Jammu and Kashmir Football Federation offering a training stint to Kashmiri youth Majid Khan, a footballer who recently returned home after quitting the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT).

"I was very sad to read reports of Majid joining a militant organisation. Football has provided solace to many over the years and I felt he requires a platform to play the 'Beautiful game,' again," Bhutia, the only Indian player to have played over 100 international matches, said on Saturday in a statement released by All India Football Federation (AIFF).

"I have already touched base with the J&K Football Association offering him to train with Bhaichung Bhutia Football Schools in Delhi. I want him to train under my coaches and then we can decide where he stands as a player. I believe he deserves an opportunity and hence, felt best to open the doors for him," Bhutia added.
