London: Athlete K T Irfan said he is ready to accept the offer made by sports minister KB Ganesh Kumar who stated that Kerala is ready to adopt him. Minister said Irfan would be given good training and job in Kerala. Irfan said he would come to Kerala. Irfan scored 10th position in men's 20 km walk in Olympics.
``Currently I'm working with the army. If I get good offer, then I will accept it,' he said . Irfan would start preparation for next Olympics soon. He never expected he would give good performance like this. May be he should have scored medal as there were two fouls which spoiled the chance.
Irfan said the time difference between the bronze medallist and him was just 40 seconds. He will reach Delhi on August 14. From there he will go Patiala to collect the luggage and then only will come to Kerala. He said all his natives are waiting for him. He will talk to the government on job offers once he reaches here.
