You Can’t Be Rich Playing For Nigeria – Okocha Cautions Dream Team Players

Former Super Eagles captain, Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha has urged Dream Team V1 players to be proud of representing Nigeria at the Rio Olympics football instead of hope to make money doing so.

Financial problems have marred the team’s march to the semi-finals of the Rio Games, but Okocha has warned the players that they cannot become rich simply by playing for Nigeria.
“You can’t get rich playing for Nigeria, you will get exposure and touch lives,” Okocha said.
“We have to look beyond match bonuses when playing for our country.”

‘Jay Jay’ recalled how his turning professional in Germany wiped out poverty from his family.
“The decision to take the flight to Germany took away poverty from my family,” he recounted.

Okocha, who won Olympic Gold in 1996 and featured at three World Cups, played for Eintracht Frankfurt (Germany), PSG (France), Fenerbache (Turkey), Bolton, Hull City (England) and in Qatar before he finally quit the game.
