    Rangers are always in Europe almost every season. Southampton are a struggling Premier league club always fighting relegation but don’t get relegated. This is what different persons are saying on this platform. Everyone has right to express their opinions.

    Now, if you happen to be Aribo who plays football for a reason and that reason is for daily bread, I have a question to ask here, would you keep on playing for Rangers cos they always play European football alongside low wages or you make a move to Southampton where you are guaranteed a wilder ground for exposure for all to see and to cap it all, an increase in wages?

    Well, if am Aribo, I will surely jump into the Southampton boat and take a cruise on the EPL.

    Here in Warri, there is a popular saying which we normally tell ourselves: “at all at all na e bad pass” or “one plus one na two”. “From this expression, it clearly shows that Aribo’s move to England is a welcome development. All is now left for him to prove himself before the watching world as he stares for the Saints. As a Nigerian, I can pray and wish he takes his game to the next level where one among the top 6 or other big European clubsides will come calling but only time will tell.
