German football legend watches first ISL match in Kochi, meets IM Vijayan
Kochi: Patrick Owomoyela, who came to Kerala as part of his campaign for German Bundesliga team Borrussia Dortmund, experienced his first ISL match in Kochi in the game between Kerala Blasters and Odisha FC. The Dortmund legend was also present at a special screening of Bayern Munich vs Borrussia Dortmund match with fans from Kerala. The former German International openes up about his experience in the state.
Vijayan Is a Superstar
This is the first time I am watching an ISL match. I also met IM Vijayan when I was watching the ISL match. I talked to him while we watched the match together. He is still popular with the fans even after so many years of retirement. Vijayan is a superstar of Indian football.
I love yellow
I was excited to watch the match of Kerala Blasters. Yellow is my favourite colour as well. I understood how much the fans love Blasters. They played really well against Odisha, though they could not win. This is my first visit to Kerala. The thrill of this visit has been Champions League boat race.
Kerala and Bundesliga
I learned that German football has a fan base in Kerala. I have been told the special screening of Bayern Munich vs Borrussia Dortmud at Kochi will have participation from thousands of fans. I would love to visit Kerala more for the sake of German football.
