German and Bayern Munich legend Oliver Kahn met AIFF president Kalyan Chaubey here on Tuesday and discussed the possibility of establishing a goalkeeping academy.
Visiting India after 15 years, Kahn - a former Germany captain and goalkeeper - had played his farewell match for Bayern Munich in a friendly against Mohun Bagan in front of a jam-packed crowd at the Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata in May 2008.
“Had an absolute honour in welcoming Mr. @OliverKahn to India,” Chaubey said in a tweet.
“In our informal discussion on #IndianFootball, we deliberated & explored many topics of development, including the scope of having a Goalkeeping Academy.
I wish him a pleasant stay in India.” It is learnt that the AIFF is not officially involved in bringing Kahn to India, and he has come here on a private visit.
The 54-year-old goalkeeping great will interact with young students at two schools in Mumbai on Wednesday.
After that, he will head to Pune where he will again interact with students of other institutes on Thursday.
