Former Nigeria captain, Nwankwo Kanu has urged fans of the Super Eagles and English Premier League side Arsenal to put the disappointments of their teams behind them, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Reacting to the Eagles ouster from the 2015 AFCON in Equatorial Guinea after drawing 2-2 with South Africa last week Wednesday, and the Gunners 2-1 home loss to Manchester United – which further plummeted the club’s title chase, Kanu advised that the fans should all learn from the setbacks.
He wrote on his twitter page: “I thought it was a dream but it’s real, what happened to Nigeria/Arsenal. I know how you all feel, but can we pick up and learn from the mistakes?”
The Eagles who needed a win to secure qualification for the 2015 AFCON could only draw against group A winners South Africa.
Arsenal, who Kanu featured for from 1999 to 2004, and won the EPL and FA Cup with, were defeated by a depleted Manchester United side on Saturday.
