Graham Stack hints Kerala Blasters return
Graham Stack, who was a part of the Sachin Tendulkar co-owned ISL Franchise, Kerala Blasters, that reached the final of 2016 hinted the possible returning to the Kochi-based franchise.
Speaking on a talk show hosted by sports radio station talkSPORT Former Arsenal goalkeeper Graham Stack said, "We (Kerala Blasters) got to the final of the ISL and lost but it was a great experience. I could potentially go back and link up with Steve Coppell if he went there but I am under contract here so I don´t know."
"Cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar was our owner but even then, it was completely football in Kerala. They are fanatical about football, even the police are there singing and dancing with the crowd. They don´t think they are superior. There was never any trouble I faced with respect to security either," he added further.
"The biggest thing for me in Kerala was playing in front of 70000 supporters," he recalled.
He also mentioned, "We stayed in five-star hotels and were treated like movie stars. We were looked after very well but the training facilities were poor and the grass needs a lot of work. But they have this U17 World Cup coming up and I´m led to believe they´ve invested a lot into improving the facilities."
