“I came too early,” ex Nigerian footballer, Okocha, reacts to Messi’s £1m weekly pay
Former Super Eagles captain, Jay Jay Okocha, has reacted to Messi’s weekly take home of £1 million at Paris St-Germain.
Speaking in a chat with The Guardian, Okocha said his time as a footballer came too early.
“I came too early and Messi came at the right time. If I was paid such amount of money in my playing days, maybe I would have stayed back in France forever. I wouldn’t have thought of coming to Nigeria,” he said.
