    Dump your national team, watch your career tumble down. That’s all I see when the stories of the likes of Emmenike, Enyeama and co comes to mind.
    I hope he nicks a deal soon. At 32 and without a whole season of football, its definitely not gonna be funny…!

      Even those who do not dump the National team also find it hard getting clubs at that age bearing in mind that our players add to their stated age..This, therefore, makes it hard for them to get offers cos most clubs are in the know

      Dr drey, please don’t include Enyeama, in that list. Over 100caps for the National team cannot be said to have dumped the Nation. He had already giving his best to the Nation and decided to call it up. He is not in the same category with Emenike or Moses. Even Mikel was not as committed as him in his early days.
      Whatever downward trend in his career is expected and normal for every top player.

      We should try to respect and celebrate our legends regardless of how they left the scene. He is still the longest capped Super Eagle player till date.
      Peter Ruffai stayed beyond his prime and Nigerians regretted it. He did dump the National team but simply step aside after a very illustrious career.

        Correction: He did not dump the National team

          @ Ikeben, the point @drey was making, is, those guys were still playing at top level when they called it quit with d SE. That always leads to a downtrend. You only retire when you start experiencing a downtrend n not when you’re still in top level.
