Jay Jay Okocha is better than Cristano Ronaldo and Messi – Samuel Allardyce

Samuel Allardyce, former Bolton Wanderers manager has rated ex-Super Eagles captain, Austin Jay Jay Okocha above world best players, Cristano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Recall that Okocha joined Bolton Wanderers on a free transfer after leaving PSG in the summer of 2002 after the FIFA World Cup while Allardyce was in charge of the English side.

Allardyce believed that among the current generation of footballers, there has never been a player like Okocha.

He wrote, “I love Jay-Jay’s tricks on the ball, I could watch him all day… He could do drag-backs, flick-overs, double step-overs, there’s been no else like him, not even Cristiano Ronaldo.”
