    Pogba is not better dan you kelechi, go and become africa latest yaya toure. The last time i saw you at the murtala muhamed airport, i told you that we are waiting for you to take after obi mikel, u smiled and say you will do your best. Now the chance is there to become great. How do you do that? Increase your reaction time, which i noticed its a bit too slow for top european league! Priotise the easiest decisions before the difficult ones, your shots and passes are well accurate enough so no question about that. But try to adapt the 2 touch mentality as u can see there is no time to look around with the ball(thats where etebo is having difficulties playing from deep midfield) allways anticipate ur decision befor you gets the ball) if you playing against sharp guys like osihmen, ngolo kante or Ndidi they wont give you that chance to make elephants movements. So its either you are runing forward with the ball or you release it quickly not morethan 2 touches abeg bcos any blunder you make can be punishable by goal against you. Since etebo blunder against ukraine *equaliser* thinking with the ball from deep as if he was planning to write a letter from his office, u see how Rohr is gradualy discharging him! Finally you have to be more energetic and agressive. If you do well. I promise you barcelona might found the new xavi in you. Wish u good luck.
