Kanu Salutes Arsenal Players Over Huge Win Vs Chelsea

Legendary Super Eagles striker Nwankwo Kanu has praised Arsenal players following their impressive win against Chelsea in Saturday’s Premier League.

Alexander Lacazette opened the scoring from the penalty spot before Granit Xhaka doubled the lead from a superb free-kick late in the first half.

The Gunners went 3-0 up thanks to a Bukayo Saka’s lob over Edourd Mendy while Tammy Abraham pulled a goal back for Chelsea.

The Blues were awarded a penalty in added time but Benrd Leno stopped Jorginho’s effort.

And reacting to the win, Kanu who won the Premier League, FA Cup and Community Shield during his time at Arsenal, described the win against Chelsea as a Christmas gift.

He urged the Arsenal players to believe they can build on the win against their London rivals.

“Well done Arsernal what a Christmas gift,” Kanu wrote on his verified Twitter handle.

    Imperialism has completely turned us into a lost people. All this Man United this, Arsenal that, Real Madrid and Barcelona… When will our stakeholders, the likes of Kanu, Okocha and the rest start real campaign to crusade for revival and a real turn-around in our league… The way we continue to caper in excitement about foreign leagues won’t take us anywhere. See where South Africa is with their home league compared to Nigeria… God save us.

     
    • Is it only JJ & KANU that are watching EPL or commenting on the clubs they played for??

      Don’t we use to see the likes of DROGBA, ETO, ESSIEN, having their own say about their former teams???
      Are they English?

      Is KANU & OKOCHA your SPORT MINISTER, NFF & LMC directors??
      (or is it bcos they did not join the ban wagon of Rohr is not good?)

      Sport minister that suppose to lay emphasis on the NPFL is shying away…. Instead, he allow those cabals mislead him to only concentrate on already established unit (SE) that was doing well even b4 he came in.

      He would rather join them to do things upside down; (National team grooming players for local clubs)….
      hahahahaha…
      Who curse nigeria?

      Imagine england, italy, france, spain, cameroun, ghana, CIV, algeria, senegal sport minister, FAs, EX calling on national team coach to groom players for MAN UTD, JUVE, PSG, BARCA, COTON SPORT, KOTOKO, ASEC.
      Hahahaha

      It’s not all Nigerians that would see white and still call it black.

      We have men of integrity in this country.

      They don’t care ur person.
      They call a spade a spade.

      @JimmyBall, God bless you. That is what is drawing our system back in Nigeria.

      We should figure it out why we never developed faster compared to western world.

      We never like anything about Nigeria only view people does.

      @JimmyBall, We adopted white people lifestyle even no winter in Nigeria but Nigerians are wearing socks in hot weather? Can you imagine that?

      And when you educate them they will tell you that in America, Europe thay are wearing socks forgetting that it’s most cold over there.

      Oyinbo came up with what works for them in this Covid-19 pandemic but we Africans couldn’t come up with our own ideas.

      Africa can not do their own thing that suits their system. They are over relying on white people. What a shame.

      Copy Copy is everything about us. Even, we are throwing out our culture. Nobody wants to speak their languages no more. Only English language is acceptable in every home in Nigeria.

      Our League is nothing to write home about. Still our ex players can’t do anything about it. They should collaborate with NFF and NPL to upgrade and bring back our NPL.

      Hmmm. @JimmyBall, what can we do to solve this problem? It’s simple. Love is missing among us in Nigeria.

      We have to distancing ourselves with jealousy and tribalism. Then, live comes in.

      Impossible is nothing. If you remember the old Lagos. Lagosians said Lagos can never be good nothing good can never come out in Lagos but thank God new days has come and some parts in Lagos are enjoying good roads now.

      Have you seen the new trains in Lagos/Ibadan all the way to North?

      Go watch the documentary on YouTube. For us to have such a thing in Nigeria presently, there’s hope for Nigerians.

      All needed in this country is a good leadership. We are blessed by God and if we use love, transparency and fear of God then we can achieve anything in Nigeria.

      Let me stop here. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!

        and nothing good can never come out of Lagos but thank God new days has come and some parts of Lagos state are enjoying good roads now.

        What I have seen so far, there’s hope for Nigerians. Although, it may take time because of the 419 things in the system.

        Have you seen the new trains in Lagos/Ibadan all the way to North?
        Nigerians will enjoy that too. That includes maintenance and job opportunities.

        Go watch the documentary on YouTube. For us to have such a thing in Nigeria presently, there’s hope for Nigerians.

    Honestly becoming shameful albeit not totally putting the blame on the ex internationals. Nigeria as a country is blessed but nigerians disposition to life sulks.
