Sachin Tendulkar has consented to a request of CPI-M LDF government in Kerala to use his name in a campaign against drug and liquor abuse in the state. This was stated by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan after Tendulkar along with three other co-owners of the Kerala Blasters Football Club (KBFC) met him at the state secretariat in Thiruvananthapuram on Wednesday.

“Tendulkar has given consent to use his name to strengthen the campaign against liquor and drug abuse in the state. He has agreed to cooperate in the campaign,” Pinarayi Vijayan told.

Vijayan also said the KBFC has agreed to set up a residential Football Academy to train young talents in the state. Speaking on the occasion, Tendulkar said the main mission of the academy was to produce international level players from the soccer-crazy state in the next five years. “You will have really something to smile in a few years time,” Tendulkar said.
