Jay Jay Okocha, soccer, football

Former Eagles midfielder, Austin Jay Jay Okocha shows his confidence with Nigeria he believes that Nigeria will scale the hurdle of Ethiopia and qualify for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

Okocha said it was a good fixture for Nigeria, but warned about a cautious approach against the East Africans.
The last time both teams met, Nigeria needed two late penalties from Victor Moses to seal a 2-0 victory over them at the 2013 African Nations Cup.

“The Ethiopians didn’t get a bye to qualify for this final stage; they worked hard to qualify. We cannot, therefore, afford to take them for granted. We must put our acts together to ensure that we beat them and qualify,” Okocha told The Punch.  

“It is very helpful that the Eagles are playing first in Addis Ababa which is surely an advantage. But we must then use every advantage to our benefit by preparing for the encounter like a real World Cup game. We have no reason not to qualify,” he added.

The iconic soccer star known for his dribbling skills, Austine Jay Jay Okocha is said to have put one of his many houses for sale due financial reasons.

Though, some people said his idea of selling the house may be unconnected to global economic crunch that is eaten deep on him.

Jay-Jay Okocha: Bolton was a "waste of time"

Jay-Jay Okocha stayed with the Lancashire for four years from 2002, he made 145 appearances.

His time in Bolton coincided with their rise up the Premier League under Sam Allardyce, a period that also included a League Cup final appearance and a European campaign.

It all seems like such a long time ago now though.

Robbed of star men Stuart Holden and Lee Chung-yong for virtually the entire campaign, Bolton struggled throughout and finally paid the price when they failed to overcome Stoke on the final day, which ended an 11-year stay in the top flight.

Okocha felt the collapse was inevitable after a steady decline over the previous few years.

"We changed the image of the club," Okocha said. "We established the club in the Premier League and we thought they would build from there.

"But all our efforts have been thrown away. It feels like all that work was wasted."

It could be argued that Bolton were living beyond their means signing stars like Okocha, Ivan Campo, Fernando Hierro and Youri Djorkaeff in the first place.

Owner Eddie Davies has been trying to keep a tight rein on spending as Bolton's debts escalated over £100 million, a situation that life in the Championship is unlikely to improve.

"I have been following the Premier League very closely because once you have been a footballer you have an affinity with the game," Jay Jay said.

"It was a sad season for Bolton but it was bound to happen. When you don't spend or invest in the future, you can't always get away with it."

"They have been playing cat and mouse with the club for some time now and the cat has caught up with the mouse. It is a pity.

"We laid a good foundation at Bolton but unfortunately for the fans, they have to deal with Bolton being a struggling team again."
