World football governing body, FIFA, African football governing body, CAF, the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) and football clubs Bolton and Eintratcht Frankfurt took to social media to celebrate Nigerian Legend Jay Jay Okocha as he turned 47 on August 14.
Okocha was born in Enugu and started his career with Enugu Rangers in 1990 before moving to FC Saarbrucken and then Eintracht Frankfurt in 1991.
He made 90 appearances for the club during his four-year stay before he moved to Turkish Super Lig side Fenerbahce in 1996.
Okocha signed to PSG for £14 million which made him the most expensive African player at the time.
He then joined Bolton Wanderers and is widely regarded as one of Nigeria’s most talented footballers of all time.
Happy Birthday Jay Jay.
