5 facts you need to know about Nigera's legendary number 10, Jay ...


Former Paris Saint Germain manager, Philippe Bergeroo, has voiced his admiration for retired super eagles captain Austin Jay Jay Okocha.

Okocha, a former nigeria super eagles player , played for the Les Parisiens between 1998 and 2002.

Michel Platini, who Bargeroo likened Okocha’s style of play to, is a legend in France and European football, where he made a name for himself with Nancy, Saint-Etienne and Juventus.

Bergeroo told planetepsg.com in an interview that the former Eintracht Frankfurt star had skills that many footballers of his generation lacked.

Bergeroo said, “He (Okocha) was a good guy, the joy of living embodied, someone who had exceptional peripheral vision, a bit like Platini.

He continued, “He knew where all the players were. In taking visual information, it was exceptional. In the end, our relationships deteriorated. But I’m glad I had a player like that.”
