1:34 am
around some jamaicans and you know a little bit about their language and culture and. explains his nickname explain where did that come from. my dad gave me the name when we just started before. he's just like yeah you know you look like. i've been from the i've been on chipmunk movie yeah let's see if he does. everybody have been on the chipmunks until it was us you know until it was chipmunk until it was chippy you know. but somebody said you know they have been close here. my life on ok i know all of the moment so. so by the end of this interview i'll be calling you chipping in this. morning and this road landslide was no walk in the park you know when i look back on my life that i didn't go so at peace it wasn't easy and i mean it wasn't bad as well but. it was difficult times i
1:35 am
was there with my mom and everything i've experienced a lot of things there that even make me stronger in life you know so next picture you relate to this just. like my five. and only younger one will always be able to be guys and everybody see that i had talent and yet it didn't stop me from primitive big because i could actually handle the situation and ever since i've been playing with all of us ok and you still do now and now i know you make a very young age came over to europe a young. writer. so this picture means a lot to me why because we were three pioneers who first came to europe we didn't have any experience of winter or nothing at all and i remember we came with only
1:36 am
one jacket to europe and that must be crazy and we came through in the winter time was due in february when it's really cold in australia no one we were young i was twelve thirteen thirteen we didn't have money we had to live off a budget sometimes we would have to read. for breakfast lunch and dinner just protruded day and just know that yeah because we had a dream from we were very young. because. when you go back to jamaica all the jamaicans into they call you the europeans are making their way you know they everybody's seen me as a jamaican of course everybody know that i'm doing it big in you but jamaicans are like because they never tried to give up their culture. all right now staying on the theme of jamaican because part of this is just to help
1:37 am
our viewers out there learn more about. all jamaicans like reggae music. is not true. jamaican like reggae music. so what kind of music do you like well of course i like very good music because jamaica is my hometown and i have done so and next to reggae in jamaica and that's the basically biggest thing right now in jamaica down. to you know my yeah i'm line right now honestly i'm more of a bob marley fan i guess i'm in the same community here. so if you play dancehall music for your teammates here labor because they are like gonzo music. and the distant to it and they introduce leon to a bit of german culture to do you know. i read somewhere
1:38 am
that you saying he's speaking from eating yams so the stereotype question here is all jamaicans can run fast. growing food which would be. potato. under those things so i think that's what. makes us originally strong begun fast you know so if you ran with him you'd have you try to run like never trying to run a team. don't think on this. all jamaicans are late when i'm here i'm never like that i'm. always on time in jamaica it's a different thing is a different culture i think it is true because most people are always late like. they would tell you some stories you'd never believe. it's hard for me to believe. everything is irie. is that too much too large and yeah that's some
1:39 am
modern ok with everything good money everything good money. so that means like everything is good money. leon should be bay which has come a long way in his twenty years in plans to go even further i have. a lot more to go and this is for me always a learning process you know so i'm just going to continue on. in the future i'm sure better things and more things will come my head. i have a good time too let's leave leverkusen with bob marley.
1:40 am
how did you become a professional footballer in germany for the past three months we've been accompanying finney on his mission to do just that with his dream become reality really find a club in your. time for the final episode in our series. ok we're back to check up on the new number. the promising talent from ethiopia his efforts to find a club in germany did not work out. but it took a plane to have
1:41 am
a nya and a few days later his agent alfred gave me a call with the good news. just signed a contract. when he is now wearing red and white he signed the contract with. a ok. after returning from my holidays i'm taking the first plane to albania i don't know much about the venue in football sounds like an interesting time in two thousand and fifteen the club became the first abang inside to reach the playoff round of the champions the last two nama zagreb dropped into the open but was the first of a new team to qualify for the group stages of a competition now scan the mayo had a chance to repeat that success and again they face deny. after drawing
1:42 am
tracey gold a strong enough to make scan the bails dream come true defense comes first meaning few chances for young forward been. the ninety six minutes left now on. watch out europe scan the bayeux. been in the stadiums parking lot didn't get on the pitch but making his first one for you pin match is a big kitchen. the fans love the african play since going to be you know started integrating african talents like bin he and his gambian roommate ali so when the provincial team has improved its fortunes.
1:43 am
after thirty minutes delay we are heading to the players' party and. the best part here to play was definitely not cheap it can close to my imagination of the exclusive world of being a professional footballer. and being me a boy so that the next morning we have an important appointment at then yes public t.v. station only after it seems like he's not one hundred percent fit for the camera. he's doing a special honor of being us first if you'll be a player and his journey to the land of the skipper to. the school they're built so how can you call your. name. you can say beanie and we say always
1:44 am
that you came to him benito with a piece near the ok it's also interesting how i first describes his job as a play at a job where death of the editor to step past the only. top of the half years ago i mean it was a strange experience to be interviewed to be dumped on a bush continued program. during the three days often. being spent his time doing nothing eating and sleeping. and i was. three weeks. and. then i went. it was very hard i didn't get bread to be professional player and. to see my future.
1:45 am
i have to try these parts on his. first play up from a top to. sign him in europe you know in one club from europe. he is the it was with the sixteen yeah. with the national team and now it's the second. place on the press plane in europe from a top you know but he was the second is a sort of yeah. the new seems happy and i've been scandal bayo were given time to adapt he's making good money and his chance of playing in their own growth. following our fraternity banya looks like it was the right. name just again so i thought.
1:46 am
i was i. going to miss. beard as a little sisters just a different team so father. just . couldn't it was over and. football is loved in africa. break players have come from the continent and they're successful everywhere they go but why all the african coaches in europe's top leagues are they simply not given the chance.
1:47 am
very good job they're doing their job very good there is a lot more coming up. look at an african coach puts his team through its paces this is forty. a traditional club in the dutch second division sunday only say is one of the first football players from africa to turn coach in a european league. to task ahead of me was herculean. if i give you the new stuff. to get. used to this before you have to realize by africans that. you have to do your best because you're not only cooking for you. you're pushing for the continent you know because how would you do might influence how the front office might be given a chance because the problem i had my friend when i came was that i had nobody to me to. i had no. idea africa did it let me try and do like this
1:48 am
there was no. so why no successful african coaches in europe there's no shortage of talent from the continent on the pitch did he a drug. yeah yeah to ray. emerick obama young and samuel eto just to name a few journalist christian even as he's written a book on the subject his german title translates to i will run like a black person to live like a white person. hangs . level. for four months kristen he has traveled across the continent to discover the
1:49 am
structure and the magic of the beautiful game in africa and the world is full view such hope fantasy and design in his book gave us analyzes the different perspective . of football in africa and takes a look back at the games roots. because that is out of. the if with eyes and discipline you want. the food. warm. in qunu. you want men with a dance activity an altar with so activity and i wish you all the best and of course even down the hall on the following day the boat developments on board nigeria. sunday only say is an african people. but he's also well known across europe. he had
1:50 am
a successful playing career in the bundesliga with cologne and barista dormant he also played for i.x. and eventis when he finally hung up his boots he completed his coaching badges in england it's difficult getting the coaching badge just because. several dispositions that are given to you if you are citizens to get those by just that you as an african might not get. the caps only say for nigeria once any use whereas european internationals could use baz to skip some steps of the course . graphic and it's a long and expensive process. so i think that's a hindrance maybe why some africans first of all now want to spend all this money and get this batch even if i get it i'm not sure i'm going to get a job anywhere in twenty fifteen only say became coach of the nigerian national team but left after one year following i dispute with a nigerian f.a.
1:51 am
who took over auto fister and folk i think also german coaches with a long history of working in africa sunday only save believe that an african could do it to stephen keshi. was a successful player in europe before coaching nigeria to victory in the african cup of nations and guiding them to the world cup but he had a cite say even higher. because she was not just only a big soccer player he was also because if steve was saying this because i know him also he was and is because he had also tried a lot to get coaching opportunities in europe and those were always good for him. being he won the african cup of nations with congo following his own successful playing career in europe he came to the same conclusion.
1:52 am
definitely you from the experiences or from their own difficulties they faced so. when most for spoke would you say what's. an optimistic and positive minded person the question is what can we do to change it you know it's hard getting. the jobs because nobody would give you an easy job to start with is to show what you can do something wholly say took charge of petunias sits out at the beginning of the year on the back of a tenth straight defeat they found themselves at the bottom of the table he saved them from relegation this season the club line second position which could mean promotion come the end of the campaign. i don't know what a secret is to success but i can just tell you i can give you an idea of what i did i came from africa i saw different leagues different cultures different plane styles so i think that's. the decision what i did here
1:53 am
was that first i came i looked at the team. and i needed to have players who were hungry. players the park workers. at the league's poorest club only say makes up for a lack of funding with hard work he is well on his way to becoming the first african coach to experience any real success in europe. and the models on this i know more than a good. little if it's just a men's housing supply that i bicycled if you are going off upon this you know he has a point. but i told myself just i can also play it when the chance comes i must be right very good one trainer fights for emotional coaching fortune assists and also for the african continent to get back on the yard. yeah. yeah.
1:54 am
yeah yeah. yeah. yeah. yeah. yeah. yeah. yeah. yeah. yeah. yeah yeah. yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
