Jay-jay Okocha Returns To Football With English Club by zinachidi(m): 10:54am On Jul 31, 2015
Former captain of Nigeria’s Super Eagles, Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha may be on his way back to English football.

The former Botlon Wanderers skipper, who is the second all-time great for the Whites, was reported to have played 45 minutes for Wolverton’s reserves but is yet to say if he would stay with the club permanently.

Austin 'Jay Jay' Okocha might return to English football anytime soon

The 41-year-old former Paris Saint Germain midfield trojan, who played for Eintracht Frankfurt in the German Bundesliga, might complete a shock return to the football pitch if he agrees to any offer from the modest English clubside.

According to sbnation.com, Amanda Keech, chairperson of Wolverton Town, said: “He did play 45 minutes last week for us but we can’t say either way whether he will sign yet.

“He is friends with somebody who coaches at the club and could be helping out with pre-season training with the players. We will be able to say more once he has decided.”

Okocha captained the Whites to the 2004 League Cup final for the first time in the club’s history and was listed on FIFA’s top 100 football players ever.

The legendary Nigerian player recently blasted Nigerian football, explaining how the country’s round leather game became a mess.

Wow.

Its a two way thing tho. Some people love to do what they enjoy doing while making money off it. He might be feeling a vacuum inside since he stopped playing.

Two. Has he considered his health? He is not getting younger any longer and this running around in the pitch... I no fit cannot shout o. Lol.

My one kobo? Let him find a way to join the game but not as a player. After all he has made enough cash to start up his own club.

The most talented African Player ever.

JayJay Okocha....so good they named him twice.

Ask Becham, Roy Keane, Oliver Khan, all those Denmark players in France 98, Ferdinand, Ljumberg. The list goes on.

Even the Great Ronaldinho made reference to him at some point.
