      Omo, like you knew exactly what I was thinking in my mind as I read this news.
      When Yaya Toure becomes Cote D’Ivoire’s NT’s coach in some years now just like the present Morrocan Coach (who is also an ex-Morrocco International), some ignoramus would start siting them as an example for our seemingly lazy internationals with entitlement mentality to take over as SE coaches just because they had played for 9ja in the so called “untouchable class of 1994”.
      Nonsense and konkobility yin.
      Check out this dude, his brother (Kolo Toure), Coach Egbo, Seyi Olofinjana et’al, they are all working their sucks off in europe and all around the globe cutting their teeths in the trade and learning the ropes under some great coaches but some people would just sit down and expect NT’s jobs to be thrown at them ala carte. Shioor
