    I wish this guy all the best
    Very hardworking and serious minded fellow

  • Etebo is physically strong no doubt but is vision and ball retention and distribution is suspect.Same problem with Ndidi. These boys should learn from mikel. Good midfielders play more with their head than strength. See how Ndidi gave away the freekick that mahrez converted not forgetting Etebos errors at the world cup that cost us a second round. So they have to really work hard to be world class. Or better still etebo can be played from the wings from whr he score 4goals in a single game at the Olympics. He is not a natural midfieder and shows in big games

    • Only God knows how many coaches we have in 9ja…

      Some of your comments are correct but not all.

      Etebo has never been played from the wings. He was just played further up the pitch and could score 4 goals which is good.

      Etebo is good with ball retention, he is one of the best in the world when it comes to retaining the ball. He is also a good tackler and tracks back really well. Where he has problems is in his distribution. I think Etebo and Ndidi doesnt pick out the kind of passes that you will see Xavi and Iniesta pick out. That may be comes with times, but I should expect them to continue to work on that aspect of their game.

      The occassional mistakes are true. Which is the problem with all Nigerians, we are abit careless when it comes to delivering consistency. That, our school system should address.

    @obidee…..LMAO,he should stay and fight for his place in stoke? really?so you actually think etebo is struggling to be good enough for stoke?come on man!,he was the player of the season in his first season there and they were all Cumming in their pants at the sight of him,he just had a serious fallout with the manager last season and has since made it clear he no longer wants to play for stoke.Its his agents I blame though, with his quality he should be playing for top6 teams in the big leagues
