The life of the former BVB striker Jan Koller becomes the subject of a documentary film.

The filming had already started, said the long-time professional footballer from the Czech Republic, according to the CTK agency on Thursday. In the film he tells his own story. In addition, numerous companions would have their say. The strip bears the translated title “Jan Koller – the story of a simple boy” and is to have its premiere in February 2022.

He was particularly fascinated by the striker’s rapid ascent, said director Petr Vetrovsky. Within a few years, Koller had made it from a player at the small local club in his native Smetanova Lhota to an important member of the national team. With 55 international goals he is the record scorer in the Czech Republic to this day.

Koller now rated the time at Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund from 2001 to 2006 as one of the best stages of his career. In Dortmund they played “world-class football”. The 47-year-old has not yet completely hung up his football boots. In Pisek, around 100 kilometers south of Prague, he is involved in the local amateur club.
