Following Lionel Messi’s transfer to Paris Saint-Germain PSG, former Super Eagles captain, Austin Jay Jay Okocha reacted to news of Lionel Messi’s weekly take home of £1 million.

Okocha,during a telephone interview with The Guardian said his footballing days ‘came too early.’ 

He said; “I came too early and Messi came at the right time,” Okocha joked. “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.”

Jay Jay Okocha’s magical display lured many Nigerian fans to French League in his playing days and to many Nigerians, it can be said that Okocha’s magical skills on the field of play is comparable to whatever Messi offers in present day football.

Messi who is a six-times Ballon d’Or winner is set to start a fresh era in Paris.
