      Hahaha real talk… come to think of it if ex players are really passionate of football over cash then they should start from here. Finidi, Yobo and Co can you be the Guardiola or Luiz enrique of Naija football before developing your philosophy with a local clubside before moving to National team??? Mr Nice I give you 75likes I have never thought of this before.

    @ Chima,this is what we are saying, that people think we are disrespectful. Sad that I haven’t got the luxury of time to do an holistic report on Nigeria n nigerians endemic problem. I have got loads to say but people may not have the patience to read. OUR PROBLEM IS DOWN TO THE WAY WE HAVE BEEN PROGRAMMED TO THINK BY GENERATIONS PAST. One day I will explain but very sad to say this downward trend doesn’t look like ending soon.
