      Top scorer in our domestic league could not get a foothold in ordinary esperance of tunisia. After nah somebody who pretends he’s with his right senses will come here and spew garbage that our home based players are good enough to claim a shirt in the eagles. We have been told the truth several times but the problem is we Nigerians don’t like to be told the truth and we find it very hard to accept it. When president Yaradua (one of the best presidents if not the best in the history of this country) died, Dora Akunyili spoke the truth regarding his demise but she almost got hunted down all bcs she spoke the truth! Our domestic league is very rotten and smelly and needs to be revamped in all ramifications completely. Our domestic league of the 70s, 80s, 90s and late 2000s cannot be compared to our league of today. There is a huge gap btw the past and the present domestic league. Imagine, top scorer for Nigeria go tunisia go fumble with only 11 apps and 2 sorry goals citing fitness levels. So what it means is that the tunisian league is more rigorous and competitive down ours and yet we claim to have the best. The day we start accepting reality in this country, that is when we shall start getting it right otherwise we shall continue our nose dive in everything . Economy 0, education 0, domestic sports 0, power 0, government 0, security —-0, leadership —–0.0

    Seems most people don’t read stories before commenting, The story says that he struggled to stay fit,he had injury problems,it doesn’t mean that he can’t play football or that he is a bad player. This lad can compete with any super eagles player period

      Okpotu is doing okay in Tunisia,he’s the league’s top scorer

  • @Michel,this is not injury issue.He is not fit means that his endurance and strength level is below par.He can’t keep up with the rigors of the Tunisian football league.There are players that have injury issues yet the club keeps them.
    What good is it when a player is good with the ball but his fitness level is low.
