Former Super Eagles international Daniel Amokachi has visited Nigeria’s catalogue of great players to explain how John Obi Mikel is edged by Austin JayJay Okocha as the finest.
Amokachi accepts that most Nigerians have personal favourites from a general list of the best players that includes two individuals with winning distinctions.
“There are several eras in our football and several people will have their favorites from the list of great players like Mathematical Segun Odegbami, Adokiye Amesiamaka, Mudashiru Lawal, Jay-Jay Okocha and Mikel Obi,’ Amokachi explained to Brila.
“But, if you were talking about winning laurels, certainly Mikel Obi is the greatest because he won everything you could win as a player; the Champions League, Europa, and the 2013 AFCON.
Amokachi believes that Mikel’s medals cabinet makes him Nigeria’s greatest produce but personally, his favourite ever footballer is Okocha.
“So, naturally, Mikel will be the greatest Nigerian player ever, but for me, the best of all time is Jay-Jay Okocha, period,” concluded Amokachi.
