“Alex Iwobi will never be like Jay Jay. They need to understand and stop comparing Alex Iwobi to Jay Jay. This guy is different. Alex Iwobi can run from London to Nigeria. Jay Jay cannot run but he has the ability, the skills and he is very intelligent. He is one of the best midfielder Nigerian has ever produced.

“Jay Jay will say to me, “Yak, forget about it. I will turn the ball like this, I dey see you o, run.” There is no one like Jay Jay. Nigeria needs to let go. Our problem in Nigeria is not football. They should focus on the reality in Nigeria than focus on Alex Iwobi, then Yak missing the goal.”
