Kolkata: Tennis star Leander Paes is keen to become an ambassador for the All India Football Federation (AIFF) to help in the game's growth in the country.
"I am a big lover of football. As I grew up, as a young kid, and in my youth, I had spent a lot of time playing football. If I can motivate young children to show them with a small leather ball you can travel the world," said Paes while addressing a programme here.
"So if football federation is looking for someone who can be the brand, I am all too willing to help in my own little way."
