How did a kid from Hoover, Alabama end up signing a contract with Bayern Munich?
That’s what I wanted to find out during my conversation with Ken Richards.
His son, Chris, is one of the most talked about young American players. And rightfully so. But his journey to Germany was anything but easy.
During this conversation, Ken talks about:
- His own personal sporting experiences
- Chris’ developmental years when he played soccer and basketball
- The rapid ascension from Alabama to Texas to Germany
No one can tell Chris’ story better than his parents. And I’m super happy his dad agreed to spend some time talking to me about what it was like raising one of this country’s best young soccer players. So I hope you enjoy this episode.
