Okocha begins 2016 Bundesliga Legends Tour in Ghana

After visiting his native Nigeria, Eintracht Frankfurt legend Jay-Jay Okocha was in Ghana on Sunday as he continued his journey on the Bundesliga Legends Tour, promoting Germany’s top flight alongside the league’s official African broadcaster, StarTimes.

Okocha, who played for the Eagles between 1992 and 1996, was a studio guest of Star Times on Sunday, as he and Charles Akonnor provided expert television analysis for FC Bayern München’s Matchday 15 visit to SV Darmstadt 98 on Sunday afternoon.

Akonnor, a former Ghana international midfielder, also spent time playing in the Bundesliga and is known for his spells at Fortuna Köln, VfL Wolfsburg and SpVgg Unterhaching between 1992 and 2005.

Okocha spent day one of the Legends Tour in his native Nigeria, visiting a soccer academy and wowing some local footballers with that famous velvet touch:

Meanwhile, erstwhile Borussia Dortmund midfielder Sunday Oliseh, who is also acting as a Bundesliga ambassador in Africa, will travel to Kenya ahead of Matchday 16, which commences on Tuesday.
