    I followed the media packaging some media outlets were giving this boy closely and was just watching to see where it will all end….about premiership clubs jostling for an Italian Serie B…each time I read the news i just laughed.

    I dont know if the boy has an Italian wife, but for someone who moved to Italy just 3 years ago, I am no too sure he is qualified for naturalization yet. So how would Premiership clubs be “jostling” to sign a player who is neither an EU citizen, nor has played 75% for his national team, nor played top flight football in Europe since 2016 when he moved to Europe, nor falls under special talent category, playing in the 2nd division in another country (knowing the bottlenecks associated with work permit issues).

    One website even claimed at a point that Arsenal were after him as replacement for Aubameyang, tagging him the ‘new Aubameyang’. Immediately after Afcon list was released, tory change o. From premiership clubs chasing him, it became Belgian and Turkish clubs. Lolz

    That was how Echiejile too was constantly in the news before afcon list was released….”Echiejile scores for club….echiejile goes the hog for finnish club….echiejile do this….echiejile do that”. Only to receive the shock of my life 2 weeks ago when he was released by the same club in Finland.

    Naija media and brown envelopes sha….!!!

     
  • I dont understand why Nigerians are always Negative, rather than wish the young guy well in his new club we talk about rubbish that has nothing to do with him. Not until we Nigerians start seeing the Positives in People that the Country will know Peace and tranquillity.
