Former Super Eagles goalkeeper Emmanuel Okocha has admitted that he was in the stand to watch his young brother Austin Jay Jay Okocha scored one of the best goals in the history of German Bundesliga.

Jay Jay Okocha stole the headline during his days in the Bundesliga after he dribbled about seven defenders, including Germany great Oliver Kahn and scored the iconic goal for his Eintracht Frankfurt in 1993.

Emmanuel who is the older brother of the former Bolton Wanderers captain told Nigeria Football Federation media team in a live Instagram session that he cried while watching his brother in Germany.

“I was at the stadium with my brother, Okocha was playing for Frankfurt he had the ball facing Oliver Khan, when he started dribbling, I put my hands on my head and I was saying if you miss this goal, everyone was in awe, even players stopped moving and when he scored I buried my head in tears. I could not hold it.”

Emmanuel who was part of the Super Eagles silver medal-winning squad to the 1990 African cup of Nations in Algeria, admitted that his younger brother exceeded his expectations in the game.

“He was better when he was younger. I could not see him much because I was always away playing for my club. He highly exceeded my expectations, sometimes I go back to YouTube to watch him.”

“He knew what he wanted. He knew his background and took hard decisions to achieve his goal, he was really wise”, he said.

Austin Okocha is regarded as the greatest Nigerian player ever and was the first African player to command a 24 million dollar transfer fee following his move from Fenerbahce to French side Paris Saint-German.

So good they named him twice. Jay Jay was phenomeal. Here those who know best spoke thus...

"Jay Jay was the most naturally talented I plays with".. Mauricio Pochettino

"I learnt a lot from Jay Jay".. Ronaldinho

" I used to watch Jay Jay as a kid"... Robinho

"Okocha was the most skillful player I ever coached".. Big Sam Allardyce


If only he made better career decisions and not run after money

Damnnnnn niggarrr
Isoright

Some footballers got this flair for football( a great talent to do something very well)

fuckDamods:
Who is Messi? Okocha was the real deal
Be a real niggarrr. It is obvious you don't watch football
I guess you haven't seen Lionel Messi's third goal against real betis
That goal alone is something else
That goal was fantastic and out of this world
Na projectile knowledge Messi use take score that goal
Then he come use the cross bar as his reference point
