6:35 pm
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 guys 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. right here. so this picture means a lot to me why because you were three pioneers who first came to you we didn't have any experience of winter or nothing up tall and i remember we came with only one jacket to euro and that must be crazy and we came through in the winter time was due in february when it's really cold in austria no one who were young i was
6:36 pm
twelve thirteen thirteen we didn't have so much money we had to live off a budget sometimes we would have to read. for breakfast lunch and dinner just to go through the 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 or what 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 try to give up their culture. all right now staying on the thing with jamaican because part of this is just to help our viewers out there learn more about jamaica all jamaicans like reggae music
6:37 pm
. is not true. jamaican like reggae music. so what kind of music do you like well of course i like regular music because jamaica is my hometown and you have done so well next to reggae in jamaica and that's basically the biggest thing right now in jamaica down. to you know yeah i'm line right now honestly i'm more of a bob marley fan i guess i'm in the same community here's my. talks. so if you play dancehall music for your teammates here labor because they are like gonzo music. and the deuce them to it and they introduce leon to a bit of german culture to do you know. i read somewhere that you say about his speaking from eating yams so the stereotype question here is
6:38 pm
all jamaicans can run fast. growing food which would be. potato. those things so i think that's what. makes us originally strong begun fast you know so have you ran with him yet have you tried to run i've never tried to run a team. don't think on this at. all jamaicans or late when i'm here i'm never like that i'm. always on time in jamaica it's a different thing it's a different culture i think it is true because most people are always late like they will tell you some stories you'll never believe. it's hard for me to believe. everything is irie. is that too much too much is yeah that's not so modern ok with everything good money everything good money. so that means like
6:39 pm
everything is good money. leon should be they would 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. always a learning process you know so i'm just going to continue on. in the future and so are better things and more things will come my head. i have a good time too let's leave labor couzin with bob marley.
6:40 pm
how do you become a professional footballer in germany for the past three months we've been accompanying freely on his mission to do just that with his dream become reality will he 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 if helping his efforts to find a club in germany did not work out. but it took the plane to mania and a few days later his agent alfredo gave me
6:41 pm
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 football that's gonna bail 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 of the nama zagreb dropped into the open but was the first of a new team to qualify for the group stages of a level competition now scan the mayo have a chance to repeat that success and again they face deny most. after drawing trace goannas draw would be enough to make scandal bale's dream come true defense
6:42 pm
comes first meaning few chances for young forward been. one of. 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 for. the fans love the african play since started integrating african talents like beneath and his gambian roommate alice so when the provincial team has improved its fortunes. than thirty minutes delayed we're heading to the players' party at an exclusive.
6:43 pm
the best part. place was definitely not cheap it came close to my imagination of the exclusive world of being a professional footballer. so that the next morning. and the point man at public t.v. station. after it seems like he's not one hundred percent fit for the camera. is doing a special person. and his journey to the land of the skipper. so how can we call you. we say always. ok it's also interesting how i first describes his job as
6:44 pm
a player. you have to step out see only. came first like a top for a half years ago i mean it was a strange experience to be interviewed and to be dubbed on a brisk walk to new programming bring it to people me see minister two of the for the three days often capital tirana being spend his time doing nothing eating and sleeping travelling through germany and i was. dreaming. and. then i went. it was very hard you know i didn't get brick bats to be professional and. to see my future. i have to try these important.
6:45 pm
from a doctor. signing in europe you know in one club from europe. here's the question it was with the sixteen yeah. with the national team and now it's the second. place on the first plane in europe from the top you know but use the sec as a sort of. mini seems happy and i bet you were given time to adapt is making good money and his chance of playing in their own growth. following our free time bane yeah looks like it was the right. down. to just a game so i knew paul. was i.
6:46 pm
going to miss. beard as a little sister is just a definite as a father. just . couldn't it was other than. football is loved in africa. breaks players have come from the continent and their success will everywhere they go while the african coaches in europe's top leagues we ask are they simply not given the chance. just to get the record there is
6:47 pm
a lot more coming up you 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 the european league . to task ahead of me was herculean. if i give you the news of. me to get the job. you through this paper you have to realize by africans that. you have to do your best because you're not only question for you. you're pushing for the continent you know because how would you do might influence how it 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 there was none. so why no successful african coaches in europe there's no shortage
6:48 pm
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 journalists and he was has written a book on the subject his german title translates to i will run like a black person to live like a white person. or. hangs . myself level. for a full months christan he has traveled across the continent to discover the structure and the magic of the beautiful game in africa and nowhere else its football view
6:49 pm
that 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 game's roots. the scientists had of. the if with eyes and discipline you want. the food. in clooney. you want men with a constructive here and all to retain so activity and i wish you all the best on the costs even from home on the following day the book development on nigeria. sunday only say is an african people. but he's also well known across europe. he had a successful playing career in the bundesliga with cologne and barista dormant he also played for i.x.
6:50 pm
and eventis when he finally hung up his boots he completed his coaching badges in england it's difficult to get into coaching badges because. several dispositions that are given to you would be on citizens to get those by just that you as an african might not get. the caps only say earn for nigeria once any. where is european internationals could use daz to skip some steps of the course. traffic unless it's a long and expensive process. so i think that's a hindrance maybe why some offer counseling first of all going to spend all this money and get this badge 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. who took over auto fister and think also german coaches with
6:51 pm
a long history of working in africa sunday only safe 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 sight 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 did those were always close 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. that tell you from the experiences and from their own difficulties they faced so.
6:52 pm
we must respect what 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 up is to show what you can do something wholly say it's a charger for tuna 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 the 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 playing styles so i think that's . the decision what i did here was that first i came i looked at the team. and i needed to have players who were hungry. players the park
6:53 pm
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 experienced any real success in europe. and in my little fun places i know more than a good. little it is just awful when his house looks like a bicycle the game was going off upon this and you know he has a point. but i told myself just i can also go play it when the chance comes i must do it is very good one trainer fights for promotion coaching fortune assists and also for the african continent so get back on the boat i ordered. yeah. yeah.
6:54 pm
