Football Lovers, Let’s Gist:- Kanu Nwakwo vs Jay Jay Okocha – Who Do You Think Is More Legendary?


Hello everyone!

Hope you having an awesome day in your various ends?

I have a very interesting question for you guys to spice up your day – Kanu vs Okocha, Who Is More Legendary?

At office today, there is a long-argument which goes thus who is more legendary, as you can imagine the responce will be split along the lines of club affilaition for the most part.

But we will like to listen to your opinion on this matter.

Let Go!!

Kanu was a languid, grace forward, at his as a second striker with a grey eye for a pass and excellent, he captained the Super Eagles for 16 years

In terms of Ability, Kanu was capable of the seeming impossible as well, as Chelsea learn to their detriment in 1999.

Witness also his spur-of-the-moment flick, spin and finish past Dida at the 1996 Olympics in the epochal 4-3 victory over Brazil.

He has won UEFA Champions League medal, UEFA Cup medal3 FA Cup Winners Medal and two African Player of the Year award.

He is also one of the few players to have won the Premier LeagueFA CupChampions LeagueUEFA Cup and an Olympic Gold Medal.

Meanwhile, Okocha was a brash,skillful and fearless ball of genius on two legs, capable of stunning improvisation. His widely regarded as the best Nigerian player of his geneartion.

In terms of ability, there is no denying Jay-Jay was superior. Multiple FIFA Player of the Year Ronaldinho marveled at him while he was in the French capital PSG, and his highlight-reel humiliation of Oliver Kahn while at Eintracht Frankfurt is one for the ages.

However, trickery with the ball alone is not enough, else a certain Kerlon (he of the famed ‘seal dribble’) would be dominating world football presently.

Okocha never won the African Player Of Year Award, becoming arguably the best player never to win the award despite coming second twice in 1998.

He did however win the inaugural BBC African Footballer of the Year and so many Individual Awards.

In 2004, he was listed in football legend Pelé’s FIFA 100 (a list of the greatest 125 living players of all time).

In 2007, he was voted number 12 on the greatest African footballers of the past 50 years list, on a poll conducted by CAF to coincide with their 50th anniversary.

So left to you Guys ?
