Do you think you know racism? Try playing professional football in Budapest, Hungary.
HFX Wanderers goalkeeper coach and former Trinidad and Tobago international stand-out and three-time Gold Cup custodian Jan-Michael Williams revisits a traumatic season at Ferencvaros in Budapest when the then 24-year-old goalkeeper and teenaged compatriots Matthew Bartholomew and Aaron Downing dealt with racist attitudes on a daily basis.
Look out for Williams’ full interview on the Burdie and Barney Show from 7 October as we discuss his development with ‘Team 2001’, the pressures of the job as a Soca Warriors player, and how he prepared himself mentally to become a high level international footballer.
