Whisper it quietly, but this Lebanon side has the makings of something truly special.Young players like Fayez Chamsine, Mohammad Haidar, Mootaz Jounaidi and Ali Hamam have all become fixtures in the Lebanon squad, and it's largely thanks to assiduous work that Bucker put in during his time.Chamsine, who was plucked from the wilderness when playing for Ijtimaii Tripoli, and introduced to the Cedars fold by the German, is currently on the books with Romanian first division side Pandurii Targu Jiu.After honing his skills under Bucker both with Lebanon and Nejmeh, Ali Hamam earned a move to Iranian side Zob Ahan, while Jounaidi and Haidar, who were handed international debuts by the former Ahed manager, were signed by Al-Fujairah and Baghdad FC respectively. The list goes on, with players including Khaled Takaji, who after earning renown as a futsal ace, now finds himself as integral member of the national side as well as Nejmeh.
