Refugee centre: Football helps people 'forget troubles'

A refugee processing centre in Munich has been helping new arrivals adjust to life in Germany with football.

Rüdi Heid from Buntkicktgut said playing football helped refugees “forget their troubles” from the places they had fled.

"They arrive and get a football friendship welcome. They get very easily friends," he said.
