Not a regular sport in the whole of Bavaria. This also means: no mercury CUP this year. As reported, we need to abandon this year to the largest E-youth tournament in the world. This space for things that are in addition to the goals and the football is now in this slow time. Things, which we have summarized in the "book of values". Today, it is the arduous path in professional football.

County–Mats Hummels, Thomas Müller and Florian Neuhaus are just a few of several mercury CUP-children, the later is a great career to have. The next one could be Karim Adeyemi, the mercury CUP winner of 2013 is certainly the best way to get there.

Schwabl about Adeyemi: "If the doesn't hit three times, he tries it a fourth Time"

of Course, the Kid noticed the Manni Schwabl the same. As a former national player, he has a razor-sharp eye for talent. It is a day in the late summer of the year 2012, Karim had come straight from the FC Bayern in the hachinger U11, was allowed to play in the U13, on the large field. And for what saw Schwabl, he finds only a really suitable adjective: brutal. "Brutal speed, brutal left foot, brutal callousness in front of goal. If the doesn't hit three times, he tries it a fourth Time.“

All of the conditions have Karim brought, at least football-wise. But is that enough? Schwabl knew the club and he faced a monumental challenge: "Karim had only football in the head." But, who knew better than Schwabl, is not enough if you want to arrive at the very top.

six years have passed, as Manni Schwabl enters the restaurant in the Hachinger Sportpark. In the afternoon, little going on, but Karim is here. A good buddy makes an internship here, he wanted to help a bit, says Karim. He moved in the summer to Salzburg, three million should have brought the then-16-Year-old the Club, Karim Adeyemi is regarded as Germany's most highly endowed Talent. And thanks to the SpVgg Unterhaching and their President.

Adeyemi is a "product of the Hachinger of the way"

For Schwabl's Karim Adeyemi a "product of the Hachinger of the way." Trust, family environment, development of personality, "here are the basics". To Karim some of the others would bite the teeth, a "scoundrel" he had been. But also a gifted Kicker. The Merkur CUP 2013, the Unterhaching won mainly thanks to his outstanding striker and goalgetter's sensational in front of the big favourites from the state capital, has shown what incredible Talent there ripens. And this maturation process, the led in the meantime to the German Junior national teams and now in Salzburg, has affected the club significantly.

Schwabl has brought Karim's parents to the boat, what he planned, can only succeed in the Interplay between family, school, and club: "We had Karim not make it clear that there are for personal development only football". The rules were tough: No homework, no Training, no Training, and no game.

Always Schwabl Karim has brought to the office, him the riot act read, or just talked to him. "We have given him confidence and he has justified it." Teachers ' positive return came reports, the school performance was better, also the social behaviour. The dog has become a serious young man, the right knows exactly what he wants.

Chelsea, Liverpool and Leipzig wanted to Adeyemi, among other things

Chelsea wanted him, interested in Liverpool was, of Leipzig. Not the amount of the transfer, but the environment and perspectives were crucial when it came to the exchange. "For Salzburg, the spatial proximity, the philosophy of the game and the educational possibilities of languages." In football, he was able to develop with 16 in men's football, in the second Austrian League, more, just 18, he was, as he made his debut in February for Red Bull Salzburg in the Europa League.

Now he wants to establish himself in professional football. Whether he's up to it? "You must have faith and set goals that are achievable," he says. And if it is, it is in Unterhaching, the loyalty to the club is strong. "This is a round of history" for Schwabl, the family remains involved. The thing with Karim Adeyemi should be a well-round story. "This brings", says Schwabl, "also for us as a club a lot of value, people will see how talent can develop."
