The Greatest Playmakers of the 2000s
No.1 Jay-Jay Okocha
If you were going to name the Greatest African footballer on talent alone, then Jay-Jay Okocha would probably be number one in the list. The Nigerian midfielder was outragously talented, right up there with the likes of Ronaldinho when it came to producing moments of magic with the ball that seemed to defy belief However, despite his talent Okacha never actually won the African Footballer of the Year Award and his list of honours is disappointingly thin, but one thing's for sure - Jay-Jay Okocha will be remembered by football fans across the globe for the sheer joy he brought to everyone who witnessed his incredible skills.
On Jay-Jay Okocha’s birthday, a reminder of the time he robbed Oliver Kahn and the entire Karlsruhe defence of their dignity.— A Funny Old Game (@sid_lambert) August 14, 2021
