Chase Gold and Not Money , Okocha tells Dream Team
Former Super Eagles Captain, Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha believes the biggest gain of representing the Country is that it serves as a springboard to fame and not riches.
The former Midfielder, who enjoyed a career span of over a decade with the Super Eagles, captained Nigeria to several Afcon tournaments and the World Cup in 2002. However though, Jay Jay insists the economic and financial gains came with his move to Germany where he launched his professional club career in Europe.
Okocha , 43, won gold with the Dream Team in 1996 at the Olympics and advised the Nigeria U-23 team in the Rio 2016 Olympic to take full advantage of the occasion to achieve glory rather than thwart their chances with the distractions over demands for match allowances and threats of boycott.
