Our Head Coach and Founder of OKO Soccer Academy

Samadu Okocha Awudu (Jay)

I am samadu Okocha Awudu professionally know as “okocha* and now know as “Coach Jay” I am the founder of OKO Soccer Academy.

Born 15 September 1984 in Accra, capital of Ghana in West Africa. My passion for soccer started from a young age, playing in the streets as a small child would soon be the start of a career I thought I could only dream of. Years passed and I continued to practice everyday, I was young but I was strong willed and never gave up the opportunity to play. My skill and dedication payed off when at seventeen I was scouted by a German club, so I moved to Europe and started my professional soccer career.

Over the next 15 years I played in many countries including Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Israel and Thailand for teams such as Hearts of Oaks, SC Bregenz, FC Senec and Maccabi Netanya just to name a few, I also represented Ghana multiple times on the national team “Black Stars”. After many years of travel and playing I now speak several languages including English, Hebrew, Slovak and German as well as my national languages. I have a great understanding of cultural communication and maintain an all inclusive attitude.

Soccer is my life, I am lucky enough to share with my family and hand down to my son who is just as passionate as I was when I was his age.

Professional Coaching

I have had some extraordinary coach’s over the years such as Lothar Matthäus, Reuven Atar, Jozef Valovic, Eli Guttman and Eyal Lahman. They helped me reach goals and gain player confidence, through my coach’s I found motivation, support and encouragement. Positively pushing me to reach my full potential, I am grateful to have had the opportunity to learn from people who are very influential.

I have taken all my experience, knowledge, skill and passion for the game and turned it into OKO Soccer Academy where children can come learn an develop in the soccer player they believe in “if you can believe it, you can achieve it” I teach this to my players because it is something my family and I live by everyday it has helped us achieve true reward for us as individuals and as a team.
