Eintracht Frankfurt’ Okocha made a mince meat of the German legend who was in goal for Karlsruhe in a Bundesliga game in 1993.

“Kahn doesn’t like me, he has taken it personal. I was just doing my job, I didn’t have the intention to hold the ball too long but he was at the receiving end,” Okocha said in a press conference organised by Star Times.

“I am grateful to God for that because people can still identify me with something in Germany.”

The former Bolton Wanderers captain also revealed how the early education he received in Germany helped shaped his career as a whole.

“Being the World Cup champions is not a fluke; their youth development programme is strong. I used to say that I got to Germany as a boy but I left as a man.

“I never knew they had the structure in term of discipline, education and lifestyle.”
