Kumar Sangakkara offered post of Sri Lanka's High Commissioner to UK

Kumar Sangakkara officially ended his career as an international cricketer to rapturous applause from fans, family and well-wishers on Monday. The cheer was led by Sri Lanka's President Maithripala Sirisena, who offered the iconic cricketer the post of Sri Lanka's High Commissioner to United Kingdom

Was the President hinting that Sangakkara prefers to live in England than in Sri Lanka?

I am afraid I find this immature and chidlish like. This is a top diplomatic post and surely playing years of sport doesnt qualify you for such a job. I would be equally childish and say Sanga will probably succeed at such a job, lets say based on the 12000+ test runs! but the point is it makes no sense..
