Black Stars legend Asamoah Gyan has stated that Nigeria’s legendary player Jay Jay Okocha is one of the best players Africa has ever produced.
Okocha was a member of three World Cup squads for Nigeria, playing 73 times for his country in the process.
“Hahaha… Jay-Jay [Okocha] is one of the best players Africa has ever produced, his skill scale, and his skill level was out of this world,” Gyan told SuperSport TV.
“I remember I was watching him when I was at school, he is one of the greatest players, one of those guys who opened the way for us, those guys who were playing at that time and you could see Ronaldinho on the bench, he was up there, he was one of the best and am happy to see him play, his skill level was great, I saw him in the World Cup with Nigeria.”
