Super Eagles legend, Jay Jay Okocha has come out to back Ozil to shine at Fenerbahce. This is coming after Ozil recently revealed that the Nigerian midfielder was his idol when he played for the Turkish club.
Ozil said, “About 20-25 years ago, I was an immigrant Turkish kid who was running after the soccer ball with the Fenerbahce shirt with the number 10 Jay Jay Okocha written on his back in the streets of Gelsenkirchen, thankfully, it was my honour to wear this jersey that I have been dreaming of for many years,”
Reacting, Okocha has said he feels completely honoured to get such a huge recognition from a world class player.
Okocha added that he is very privileged to have inspired the German, and their career paths have been quite similar.
His words, “I was very happy. I did not know about the last tweet Mesut Ozil posted,”
“It is very pleasing to be the idol of such a world star player, to inspire him.”
“Mesut’s career is similar to mine; we both played in Germany and England and he came to Fenerbahce like me now. I am very happy.”
