    Harry Kane isn’t going to Chelsea no chance! But Osimhen will goto Chelsea….. How does this sound??? It is well with Nigerian strikers who choose EPL as their port of call when they are hot.

      So he should choose Eyimba instead or shooting stars

        English players respect ManU than Chelsea…. He doesn’t fancy Manu to choose a Nigerian over a British player. This is why we don’t want Naija players to go and be struggling for recognition with British players… You people are just here typing from a naive point of view!!!

  • Chelsea was his boyhood club….. osimhen would sell bottle water to get #50 to watch Chelsea play when he was a kid in the streets of makoko in lagos……. Osimhen idolized Drogba and he modelled his game towards Drogba…… Osimhen has never hidden his desire and support for Chelsea……May his dream come true…..May the dream of all the hard working Nigerian youths who Hussle day and night all over the world come true….AMEN…… Osimhen’s fighting spirit typifies the average Nigerians’ fighting spirit……We where born into struggle and we fight to distinguish ourselves in whatever endeavors we find ourselves in anywhere in the world……#Nigerianyouthsarenotlazy

    • God bless you brother for this piece. Blood and flesh did not reveal or motivate you to write this, as this is his heartbeat considering Osimhen`s interviews in the past. I use to tell those who care to listen that Osimhen`s fighting spirit stems from his hawking day in Lagos traffic. That is his passion and life, hustling for survival and now doing so on the field of play for greater glory is understandable. He has no room for slackness, he is not trying to outshine anybody, but just doing his best for the team. May God keep rewarding his hustling, amen.

    We are talking common sense some people are talking about pure water and other gimmicks that doesn’t add up. Nigeria players have low self esteem that is why they’ll not get their true value, let your scout do the talking according to what you ask him to, players like Jude Bellingham of Dortmund or Haaland before he signed for city you think they don’t have mouth to talk the clubs they like or story to inspire them to talk or whatever, yet they keep the mouth shut and let the experts do the talking on their behalf. Look at orban he scored 4 goals in Belgium and next thing is I dream of Epl. Naija players can not value themselves for ones and learn to only speak through their representatives and make clubs die for them in que for them to be more valuable. The other day i counselled about Osimhen to not go on talking spree and someone here who claims to know clubs diary or tv show that everyone knows said I was negative and today he’s the one also saying Orban can be played as 10. Omo AKP your football IQ is next to Pep why not recommend Calvin Bassey to be played as 10 since you think football is Play Station where you arrange players according to likeness. Naija youths should start using their head more before making decisions.

    • All players talk to the media and majority of players especially haaland is very active on social media go and verify……..You know it when Nigerian players talk because our local media follows them but when other national team players talk you hardly notice……. There is no way you can prove that been silent on media will result to a better form on the pitch…….My dear friend I have never analysed formation or told anyone that I am a coach on this forum go and verify…….I only say what I observed when I watch football and believe me I watch football alot……Orban has been deployed behind 2 strikers before and I saw the match but does that mean if I say what I saw am now an internet coach?……Bassey has been deployed at Central back, defensive Midfield, Attacking winger,and left back before in matches and I watched those matches with my two naked eyes but does that mean am an internet coach if I say what I saw?…….Am I the one that played them in those unfamiliar wings?…… Football is the most unpredictable sports in the world even scientist can not make firm theories on how football success can go so stop making unverified theories that is not proven.

      Liste darling AKP, not all players talk to the media. You will never find Anayo Iwuala or Success Makanjuola on social media or granting interviews.
      You are a beautiful man but be guided when you comment. Kisses to you.

      Oga, u are talking in the rubbish! Only say what you know, don’t be blabbing on the internet as u just did. So keeping quiet will make you to perform better on the field and makes clubs queuing for u? I laugh in Spanish. Has Oshimen not be performing? Ronaldo one of the greatest criticized a whole Man United publicly does the heaven fall? He ended up being the highest paid in the world. Majority of this boys are very active on social media, even Messi are usually on tiktok live, so what is the big deal. Are they not human being, why won’t they talk to the media? How does talking to the media affect their performance? I guess u are young or just started watching football. Every player publicly stated their choice of club, and Oshimen should not be an exception

        A thousand kisses for you @Ola. Talking to the media does not impact on a player’s performance. AKP is just being naive. Xxx
        He is still a lovely guy despite his misguided comments. Xxx

        • Am not the one that said talking to media reduces performance ooo…… thanks for the compliment though.

        • Solo Makinde 1 year ago

          A thousand apologies AKP. It was Chima. He too is a beautiful guy. He will soon realise the errors of his comments. Xxx
