  • NPFL This NPFl that when the best NPFL players leave NIgeria they are forgotten then Mongrols in NPFL will start clamouring for the secon and third best in the league to make SE for thier financial gains and forget the best players that left abroad a season before. Meanwhile here is one of the best NPFL players from 2 seasons ago forgotten and abandoned by those FOOLS IN NFF ( and Mind you all he could get is Kuwait) but no let us keep putting Yum Yum FC players over the likes of Gift ORBAN Nigeria Super Eagles is fast becoming a mediocre team if these Bastards in glass house are not called into order Quickly!!!!!!!!!!! NOnsense Nigeria YEYE

      His being in the SE was never supposed to be in the first place.

      He was just a product of calculated media hype and aggressive marketing. They even made sure he wore the no 10 jersey in some of his cameo international appearances so they can include it in his CV that the boy is so good he donned the no 10 jersey for a big footballing country like Nigeria.

      The moment he made the move to Esperance and all the parties involved shared his transfer fee, it was fait accompli.

      Because I don’t understand how a player will be talented enough to be the first name on every SE list as a home-based player but become inconsequential the moment he moves abroad.

      It is either he has been pure crap and is being forced to have international caps for transfer value purposes or my name is Jack Johnson.

      We said it before that the boy was all energy but zero end product, but some jingoists here kept propping him up as the next best thing after sliced bread. Coughed out of Esperance on loan after one season, sold off outrightly to another lower-quality league the next. That tells the whole story.

      Give him 1 or 2 more seasons and you will see him back in the NPFL, like his other “many talents” that never blossom once they step out of the country, playing for Abia Warriors or Kwara United.

    All those clamouring for home base players in main stream SE despite CHAN, openly available to them are HUNGRY, SELFISH AND PURELY SATANIC.

    Some comments have cracked me up but to be fair there is talent there. I think his final product is his Achilles heel. Going to Kuwait has nailed his coffin as far as the national team is concerned. The talent is definitely there but his football education is what is affecting him. A move abroad when he was younger would have done him a lot of good but right now, you can not teach an old dog new tricks.
