Episode 13: Adrian Ochoa, Tijuana, Mexico – Kaizer Chiefs, South Africa

The World Cup 2010 in South Africa had a huge impact on Adrian, so much so that he was supporting South Africa in the opening game versus Mexico. 

He has a Twitter handle @KaizerChiefsMex where he tweets about the club is Spanish.

We spoke about the World Cup, the generosity of the South African fans and why watching international football makes him so happy.

Khama Billiat is a player Adrian feels is underrated and could be the best player in Africa.

And Keletso Sifama is the young player he’s looking to see more of.

Adrian is studying International Relations. His dream is to someday live and work in South Africa. He has a collection of jerseys from across the world (but not India, but we fixed that!) and hopes to be a part of FIFA someday. He told me a great story about watching the world cup in his school Auditorium.

I asked him what his journey as a Kaizer Chiefs’ fan has brought to him. He talked about the friendships he has formed by supporting the team.

We also talked about @multincha, that promotes supporter clubs from North and South America.
