    The problem with many of these Nigerian players is bad agents. How can you score 20 goals in a season playing in a league such as serie A and a decent club do not come for you, yet you still retain the services of such agent??? I doubt if someone like Mino Raiola has been simy’s agent he will be playing for salernitana.
