Kudus Names Okocha Greatest African Footballer Ever

In a recent interview with EA Sports, Ghanaian midfielder Mohammed Kudus, currently making waves in his debut season with West Ham United, has expressed his admiration for football icon Augustine “Jay-Jay” Okocha.

Kudus bestowed upon the former Nigerian midfield maestro the title of the greatest African footballer of all time, citing Okocha’s unparalleled creativity and skill during his illustrious career, particularly his memorable stint with Bolton Wanderers.

“I will say Okocha. Explaining through my lens how I see creative players try to entertain the game, that can never be washed away. Fans can never forget the entertainment you give them on the pitch. I know now goals and assists are important but I like creative players and players that love to entertain the fans, try to do something than what everyone is doing than just passing the ball.”

Okocha showcased his talents across Europe, notably with Paris Saint-Germain in the French Ligue 1, Frankfurt in the Bundesliga, and during an impressive four-year tenure with Bolton Wanderers in the Premier League.

His success extended to the international stage, where he secured victories at the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations and the 1996 Olympic Games with Nigeria.

Okocha also represented his country in three FIFA World Cup tournaments – 1994, 1998, and 2002.

As for Kudus, he has made a notable impact in his debut Premier League season with West Ham United, contributing seven goals and four assists in 27 appearances. With West Ham set to face Fulham on Sunday, April 14th, Kudus continues to establish himself as a promising talent in English football.
