  • There is no crime in setting a very high standards for ones self…….SE players must rise above the shadows and start having ambition…….If Fofana can move from Norway into Chelsea’s main team then I see no reason Orban can not do same……If Santos can move from Botafogo of Brasil to Chelsea pending when he gets his work permit then I see no reason why Orban can not do it……Most SE players lack confidence and self believe……. They fear competition and run to weak leagues to play and get their unmerrited national team call ups……..This has to stop….. Nigeria has not won the African footballer of the year for ages now and nobody is saying anything…….Why must we accept midiocrity and embrace it with so much love?…….We need to see our players in the champions league semi finals on a steady basis…….we need to see our players in Bayern Dortmund Chelsea Juventus Liverpool Barcelona and the likes……If we don’t have ambitious and confident players like Young Orban here then we can’t achieve greatness……..If we don’t have player who are ready to compete at the highest level then we can not achieve greatness……Work hard and Believe in yourself Orban and your dreams will come true.

      You’re right in so many ways but relax nobody is stopping players not to dream but they need to respect themselves. You think it’s by talking that makes one valued? These their talk will make these team buy them pay them peanuts and bench them when they go two matches drought….. Go and check how much Halaand is earning without noise or talk of dream!!!! Fofana is a bench warmer in Chelsea…. Football is a game of wisdom not stupidity like every other Business!!!!

      • There is an old saying that says “you can never know how a water melon taste until you open it”…..You can never achieve success without first aiming for success……You can never succeed without first trying……Fofana moved to Chelsea and he is being benched but he has made a name for himself and he will most likely bounce back…… Osimhen made his first move to a Bundesliga club and was benched today where is Osimhen?……Even in business the risk takers are the most successful…… You must not allow the fear of failure discourage you from trying……Vinicius, Rodrigo,Arthur,casimero and many young Brazilians moved from their home town clubs to top teams in Europe without even blinking and while it paid off for some it did not end well for others but that does not stop more young Brazilians from embarking on the same risk…….Success starts with desire and confidence…..If you fail you pick up yourself and re-trace your steps just like osimhen did of which am sure Fofana will do the same because he is a top top talent.

    • You do not understand football and your young Orban is not YOUNG.

      • I don’t understand football but I know a talent when I see one…..Orban is not young I agree but he has a dream and never mock at a man’s dreams because you are not God!
