I grew up with football. For one year I lived with my family in Turkey & for one year in Germany alternately until I was 5.
My passion for football developed with my languague. After I learned to walk and was able to run as a child, I was always kicking the ball against the wall while screaming “PAHCEEEE”. One day my father was watching a Fenerbahce match on TV and when I saw it, I ran straight to the TV and started shouting “PAHCEEEE! PAHCEEEE!”. That was the moment when my family knew that I was already in love with this team & this sport. Luckily it hasn’t changed until today! This is the story which ma grandma and mother are telling other people about me & my passion for football.
I was born in Koblenz (Germany), finished my school in 2011 (A levels) and my apprenticeship as a bank clerk in 2013. After that I started studying in Koblenz to become a teacher, which I have paused at the moment.
On the side I started a YouTube Channel in 2013 (english channel) & a German YouTube Channel in may this year. Of course it is mainly about football or FIFA!
What is your favourite Copa90 video and why?
I absolutely loved the Eurofan series & Derby Days! There are some videos about my club as well, but my favourite video on Copa90 is the Željezničar vs FK Sarajevo Derby Days episode! This video just got me! The feeling when I saw it for the first time! AMAZING! The cuts, music, interviews, pictures – just PERFECT!
What is the best football game you have seen and why?
Live in the stadium: It was the Derby Fenerbahce vs Galatasaray this year in march! It was my first Derby in Istanbul and this week was unbelievable…getting a ticket, atmosphere before, during and after the match! I met a lot of different kind of fans and it was just…wow…difficult to describe it in words. At the end Dirk Kuyt scored the freaking game winner andI jumped a row down, luckily the people in front of us as well! On TV: Croatia vs Turkey Euros 2008! This was incredible! Me and my whole family at home were freaking out and after that is was a BIG PARTY in the city next to us! Motorcade, pyro…unbelievable!
