6:08 am
a successful international. football career began. and then bang lives and that's what you say in german where the train passes and i'll never forget that pitch because that's where everything started for me and i went there with my brother but we didn't have football shoes you know we were in this raining boots commish before that's how you say in german and played with the rainbows scored 2 goals that day double everybody and that's how everything started. from 6. how more than most with good will who move to food no with serious amounts of less. than a in seeing it was anthony buffalo's best friend growing up in bonn. together they fired f.c.
6:09 am
rings. to victory after victory. in the early 1980 s. christophe down brought anthony power forward to the youth team at f.c. cologne where he 1st encountered the big stars of the league which wasn't always enjoyable but i remember there was the corrie door and the other left side where the young players were and on the right side all the established players were so you want to get from the left to the right sides and you needed to be mentally very very strong because sometimes one of them will come and we'll see. how to go beyond all of us or did it burn here. he was reflecting. on your caller that's why i say mentally you you have to be very strong but i was
6:10 am
always protected by people like tony schumacher softening those steffen angles was one of those stars at f.c. cologne he was respected by everyone and took young anthony under his wing. sean. to. push off and see if the middle man going. to. come on in one more year win or middle to make. the money. on august 13th 1983 anthony made his bundesliga. not a normal premier for him or anyone else. i was one of the 1st blacks and apparently the 1st of all and i was the minister of
6:11 am
a stadium. which is today totally totally different ballgame in terms of no track. i walked in and i looked up there was a whole group of. blacks so i don't know if the way i played basketball player. and they got up and. they just made may dislike black power and i said hey i'm not alone here you know and i was a great feeling. this spurred him on during his debut against the fellows. even though the game ended in defeat. played for 90 minutes and we lost the game was ok you know f.c. cologne was a stepping stone. and in my career i. learned
6:12 am
a lot in terms of human relations but i learned also that i'm not changing for the coach. 1st of all i'm training for myself. on november 5th 1994 pablo t.m. played his 1st ponderously game as a central defender. to file kind of monday fish from the phillips to play not no time on mention cunts who does forced. him to screen soonish. pablo the former striker had the chance to score. his former youth coach cheered on from the stands but not me american english like that i think. but he not this comes on falling in line and he's put in 20 afford that if i say i was in that one something about this because that was advantage of the war or and vice not the least amount that i will consider how pablo i'll assume. it was unknown one of. the
6:13 am
knowledge that could. be had so funny you might ask the sheer on. nothing on things there was a tape that says. boston for you and for his niece and the queen listen so pipe to us if we don't do hopefully for you on hugs. from then on he was playing against the best strikers in the league his 1st goal and his 10th in this league game was against fire new. company in philadelphia for example 16 meter. tall because nobody london drinkers when i pull this was there to live in. this towards. i had to send a message. had to. run a car here on. his 1st professional
6:14 am
contract was something special for pablo. telling me i'm usually fine prove it to be on the show must. go. but even you know this is on the moment. you can see. anthony that follows bundesliga career stalled after his 2nd game. season substituted halftime and didn't do well at all because there was a 2nd much out in the week and that's what he saw that hey. the very big i see how the long way to go the 2nd game was also his last for cologne. 2 years after steve you he moved to overfly sober house in the 2nd division one year after that to stuttgart a kicker's also in the 2nd tier between $8789.00 and he played for fortune of cologne impressing so much that he was brought back to the bundesliga by fortunate
6:15 am
just off in 1900. 40 provided more than just a few gold pieces its. first in this league oh no i don't even remember. what the penalty yes. i'm divestments in goal from the penalty spot i shouted to the left and he went through to his left yes i remember very very well. anthony buffalo's career in germany was hugely important to an entire continent. to create chances for all the african people you know for them. not being there were very difficult for us to also fulton spades and i think a credit to them. but it's one of the 1st black footballers in the bundesliga he faced prejudices on and off the pitch. racism was
6:16 am
a daily occurrence. it's gone it's gone it's the past you see i don't look back to money. if i look back i'm happy. that i played in the bundesliga played in france as well what really makes me happy is that we don't really have so many issues of racism anymore in the industry. back in the days my favorite team. was france for they have a lot of. africans played phnom very i'm a big fan of germany you know they have the buttons and they're as you have the podolski is from different background mesut ozil that's what i want to see. his compatriots also want to see him in their national team. past that he finally gave you for his country in 1901 and the fans literally held him aloft and with the national cine experience something very special. you know you sit in the bus
6:17 am
suddenly the whole bus starts singing. you know everybody starts singing you get out of the bus you're singing to intimidate you open and and this was something which i mean. gave me goosebumps. and african in the bundesliga was the exception in the early ninety's. pablo t.m. stood out back then on the pitch it was hard but fair the racism came mainly from the fans. to be horrid as well who want us mental for conor munch of old and the blues you're going to tell us i'm a 5 instead of. off. on tuesday i'm posting stuff from the moment from there for safety the fire must let us have as i'm running all still clothes on so it would only be in the month of fly 50 that danny can oversee lets he does all the. concerts it'd

6:19 am
it's for disney. it was $12.00 would not run villa for christ son of ours not to us. a list please it's good to give in and only. given that if he got these i'm still on the. super committee outlined by is it is this just in the cards and to xen video loiter in quincy let's examine that's washroom in. this country. his international career was special to. the decision to play for gainey was for his father although pablo felt more german . malls took there's only so europe would really play demand. yeah they do is it did it begin in this south because of if you see those did it
6:20 am
gives you the junction it but is it did i'll admit that i just was so that i didn't remember national john i don't recall. in the bundesliga pablo switched clubs. moving to vault spork in 2003 he played a vital role as captain and leader. g.m. ended his career when he was 34. plus one of the most was the opposition leader she doesn't want to come you know it's. also not afrikaner. but would be from the troops who should be in on the economy and if it's one of the few 5 on your conflicts by the committee does it for 3 of them to see the shmita bosher when i'm there he's in the shift. pablo's stayed loyal to vote. for
6:21 am
a man who actually wanted to study medicine he cannot live without football for years he's been sporting director of the youth team and he's never really been homesick. for me. is if we're going to. offer one of what's enough because and to see feel. nothing. on the safe here. money can doesn't trump abortion on view. of all of this regan this is for me a sense of. meanwhile he passes on his experiences to those who want to follow in his footsteps. the diplomat son who took a path in life. that was unplanned. let's entry facts if we. have one on the front whose votes has been been coffee the warden and i want to be
6:22 am
honest as for com 145 tape they snuck. up denise sounds to me also even. though this is. uncertain that's an effect on. father it was months old would like his son to live in africa but he also respects that pablo has found a new home in germany. and opulence was still alive you keep going to shock us on this there. isn't an early door to the default. do it by the professor. where i realize that the study you force was the he or she was. wrong. or not so and then today. after working as a diplomat for years in europe senior returned to conakry but it is unlikely that
6:23 am
pablo will do the same. when anthony buffalo ended his career in 1999 he moved to ghana. where he has lived and worked ever since. i always wanted to live in africa and i think that i could be of more value on african soil. than in germany. he certainly is over the last few years anthony buffalo has made a big impact on guinea in football. between 20052008 he was the coach of the national team. more and more he became interested in the sporting politics of africa in 2009 he founded a footballer's union in ghana which is a players' union. it's a syndicate the fight and defend the interest of the players nobody believed in it before and now we've managed to get insurance for players we created the life of
6:24 am
the football fund we had players getting the money back when salaries are not paid $1.00 contracts are differences locally and internationally most of the key players are part of the union and that also includes former british legal players because. sammy coup for the former f.c. byron star knows why baffle was so important for ghana but i think you know we have to be appreciated having the morrow you know from day one that he decided to play for gun i think that was the 1st step because he mean that maybe he will have an influence in our country to have a football and he did you. knew who he had to involve in order to build something in gonna. be on the way to. the mainstream they want to know who was. i believe. 3

6:26 am
career in 1908 after 2 seasons with 860 munich where he learned a thing or 2 from the germans for example things that because new skill for everything is ok and when i bring tony to come and speak to young footballers he would tell them that discipline is the key and we also think that you should go to school with you find work with. or you for playing play station. this is what we tell you to because play station is fiction years reality. with his football union. organizers training sessions for players without a club. he ensures that canadian footballers remain fit even if they are unemployed. eventually tracked the attention of scouts anthony buffalo

regularly organizes friendly games. my idea before though is to create enough you can you know footballers receive i believe it was a time it was time to do something like that in the beginning not everybody believed in it but i can see things are moving on and this is one thing i've learned in germany even. when it becomes tough i use the words of oliver caught him of i don't remember the name of our.
