    Good one

    Your style of play indicated that, you Henry, will conquer Africa in the nearest future. My faith in you Henry, has not wavered. However, do not emulate “Iheanacho on the Beach” so soon after this great moment of your professional journey. Stay focus. Continue to work hard. Look up to Messi, Mikel, Jay J Okocha, and others too many to mention here, who went on to cement their names in football history. These are men who never in their professional career, solicit for others to pump them up, but focus ruggedly on their natural gift which they coupled with their dedication to their callings.
    Edoman shall never support an average player in our mix.
    Those pumping Iheanacho are not helping him. He can turn around tomorrow like our Ighalo did but, tell him the real truth or Iheanacho will slide to a point of no return. Believe me.
