    Why must every new player be seen as “rival” and not as Iheanach’s complement and colleague?

    If NACHO sleep a bit this season, he’s back to eternal bench! I’ve followed this boy Daka From AFCON U-20 till the World Cup and I’ve seen the hunger and passion in him to succeed. And that’s what has brought him thus far. Compared to Nacho, ever catching cruise, comedy, link ups… Well this season will tell

      He better buckle up. Daka is a fantastic all around player.
