He sees the grass, the archers meadow, which is actually not a grass any more. And he feels at home, recalls the clay courts of Adjamé, where he learnt the Kick. "So it is with us, when it rains," said Ousmane Doumbia, and shows on his mobile phone a photo of a football game in the deep mud.
The protect meadow is a field on this Wednesday of last week, when FC Winterthur in the Cup meets the FC Thun. The continuous rain has a Terrain that is consumed, and next summer will be replaced. "I like it a lot," says Doumbia and radiates. If the Ball is struggling so that he bounces off the shins and two feet to fly away. If a player needs to reposition in order to bring him back under control. "You'll see," says Doumbia therefore, before the Match against Thun to Davide Callà, his Captain, "this is my game."
Seydou Doumbia says Ousmane: "If you don't have the quality that helps you none."
And it'll be game. As he chases the balls, how he conquered them as he drives them through the swamp, as he would never get tired of, sets it apart from all others, even of Callà, the gunner of the victory gate, and, a fortiori, of each Thun.
"I'm not bad," says Doumbia, a week later, free of any Exaggeration. He has not been in FCW already often poor, in order to remain in his image. The Stunning is less its constancy, that is Amazing that he is still in the Challenge League.
Doumbia, 27, has a brother. Well, he has four brothers, the oldest 50, and four sisters, but he has a famous brother: Seydou, national player of the ivory coast. This is the striker that broke in 2008, a force of nature on the Swiss football in, in two seasons of 63 goals for the Young Boys, scored and moved on then for 13 million Swiss francs CSKA Moscow. Now – after an Odyssey that includes a season, a Double, and 21 goals in Basel – he landed at Sion.
every Day, the two brothers talk to each other. "Did you see my goal?", Seydou then asks always, and the little brother who does not shoot as many goals, must be countered: "I've also seen that you've lost a Ball." He told it with a Smile.

Happy B-Day to my Brother & Joyeux Anniversaire petit frère# Doumbia#ousmane#???????????????????????????????????
Ousmane sitting in the Libero-Bar to protect the meadow. The hood of the white coach's jacket that he has pulled over the head, it is also cooling in the Switzerland. On his way from the ivory coast here that he has received a lot of help from Seydou. Seydou invited him regularly to Moscow to get him on the live in Europe to prepare. He knows the Stranger, since he moved in with 18 to Japan, and as unhappy was because he was alone. That's why he said to his smaller brother: "You're going to be alone. Only the quality counts. If you don't have, it helps you none. So: Keep On Working!"
In football, the small Ousmane finds the pleasure as millions of African children. Because he forgets everything around him. In television, he sees the big games from France and England. Athletic Adjamé is his first club, Adjamé is a municipality of Abidjan. Ousmane loses early in the mother, he experienced the civil war of the country during years in the handle. He lives in fear, even if the father and the older siblings want to show him that he does not need to have the. He hears from the dead. And he hears on the TV that Didier Drogba, the big Star that he is calling on the warring parties to lay down arms. In 2007, the war to end.
Didier Drogba is aimed at the population of the ivory coast.
A year later, Ousmane Doumbia travels with the Ivorian U-15 in a tournament in France. He has, for the first Time, the feeling that made him a professional base, can be baller. The step to Europe, he can make it in the summer of 2013, he is 21 and comes with Servette in Challenge League descended. One week he is in Geneva, when his father dies.
His first test match he is contesting against Etoile Carouge. After 40 minutes, he is replaced. He is overwhelmed by the pace, "the ground was too good for me," he says. But he also knows: "football means becoming addicted." And he used to be so fast that he is at Servette soon a regular player. Only to life, he must adapt himself any longer, he misses the family and friends, the bustle of Abidjan. After all, he begins to discover Geneva, the city, the lake, the people speak the same language. He knows: "Here is the Paradise."
After two years, he receives a request from Sion. Servette him, despite the forced relegation to the promotional League does not go. He is the first hip surgery, and two years later again. FC Winterthur is already aware of him, but he hesitates with the obligation, because he doesn't know how Doumbia from the second Operation recovered. Doumbia goes to Yverdon, playing six games and shows that he is fit again. The FCW gets to the spring of 2018 his man for the defensive midfield.
He wants to be like the world champion, N'Golo Kanté: "It is a pleasure to watch him."
In Winterthur refers to Doumbia is a one-roomed apartment in Töss, he goes to the Training and after the Training back home, "I am the door," he says, "and fini". He enjoys the peace and quiet of this city, the confidence of the club and the blessing of the technology. If he comes out of the house and the purse forgets, is not the problem. But if it should be the cell phone equivalent of a medium-sized disaster. With him the hardly can happen, it doesn't seem in his Hand grew when he is playing football or from home told. The mobile phone thanks to Whatsapp or Facebook, its convenient connection to the home.
Doumbia has had as a Kid never a role model, but today he wants to be like N’Golo Kanté, champion of France, champion with Leicester and Chelsea. Kanté is a tough fighter, an enormous stride is strong, excellent in winning the Ball. "It is a pleasure to watch him," says Doumbia. At 1.75 m, he is only 7 inches bigger than Kanté.

His contract with FCW runs until 2021. Head of sports, Oliver the Emperor feels happy about and not more notes, however, surprising that a player like Doumbia at other Clubs "is the theme". He makes it to think about whether the Challenge League will be misunderstood, whether the Clubs view on the age of the player and on the possibility of him winning to sell. With his age, Doumbia no longer corresponds to the concept of Talent, however, he should be with his qualities actually in the Super League at home.
"What is my goal?", back he asks. "The most Important thing is not to be violated. Otherwise, I take it Match for Match." He talks like an old Pro.
Today, the FCW counter GC plays (live from 20 clock in the Abo+Ticker) . 8000 spectators are expected to protect the meadow. The grass is deep and sandy. There are Doumbia-conditions.
