    Na dis kain nuz I wan dey heah about awa pleyaz.

    Onyekuru has distinguished himself in the Turkish league, thus, attracting big money spenders to come for his services.

    A golden fish the say has no hiding place, the Turkish league can’t be compared to some of the top flight leagues in Europe.

    But, somehow the have manage to attract good players to their league. I pray he find himself in one of the big club in Europe next season.

    If Onyekuru move to any of these big clubs coming for him, it will change alot of things in our football as more Nigerian players would want to emulate him by working extra hard in their game to attract big clubs too.

    Maybe, or very soon my questions in one of the article will begin to produce the desired answers I want, my question is, why don’t Nigerian players aim at playing in big clubs like Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus, Bayern, Liverpool, Man U, Man C, PSG, Roma and Ajax etc.

    We have been there before in some of this clubs mention above, but, why does our players remain in lower clubs in some big leagues around the world, and others prefer smaller leagues in Eastern Europe and Scandinavians.

    My prayer is for Henry to succeed in a move to a bigger club, so that others will emulate him by working extra hard on their game to attract big clubs too.

     
    • Abah-fada, you know I always love reading your submissions and the piece above is no exception – thank you so much.

      Yes, we had players in the books of Barcelona, Monaco and Chelsea and I hope we see more of this in the future.

      However, the average Nigerian footballer is a decent footballer no matter the league they play.

      Please, don’t get me wrong; I want our players to play for Real Madrid etc however, I don’t want this to be a barrier preventing players playing in lower leagues from being called up to the Super Eagles.

      That is one thing I like about Rohr and the late Great Stephen Keshi: they invite players to the national team whom they believe have something to offer regardless of the league and country that they play their football.

      Sunday Mba, Oboabona, Jamilu Collins, Ezenwa, Aaron Samuel and Semi Ajayi are only a few players who have played in modest leagues yet performed at a very high level in national colours.

      I remember when the Late Thompson Oliha came in for Amuneke in 57 minutes against Italy in USA 94, the midfielder played like a player in the books of Inter Milan yet he was playing his football in Africa.

      To conclude, I pray our players play for some of the biggest clubs on the planet if they so wish but for me, it doesn’t bother me that much.

      I like the variety of our players being picked from various clubs across leagues regardless of the stature of the league or club.
