“Why I Hate Jay-Jay Okocha” – Sunday Oliseh

Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh has finally addressed rumours making the rounds that he does not see eye-to-eye with his former Eagles team mate Austin Jay-Jay Okocha when he said; ‘’yes, I hate Jay-Jay’’.

A reporter had asked him to clear the air on rumours that he does not see or stay in the same room with the former playmaker of the Super Eagles. In response the new National team coach said, “I hate Okocha because anytime we play Tennis, he beats me,” much to the delight of the journalists present at the press conference.

We played at the weekend at Sheraton Hotel and he defeated me’’. He made light of the rumour that started after he was appointed coach of the senior national team.

‘’We’re the best of friends and we played Tennis at the weekend’’, he emphasised.

Speaking further, Oliseh said that he was going to make the Eagles to play team football combined with individual talents. ‘’If you remember our victories in 1994 and 1996, it was based on individual talents. But we do not have such individual talents again. What we need to do is to play collectively. That is what obtains in Germany and Spain. It’s a lot of hardwork. We’re here to do our best’’, he said.
