Dude the reason our football is unrecognizable is because of Rhor.
Really? I always thought it was because of Buhari.

Rooney at 18 was already established at club level. Messi was already winning titles for Argentina and breaking into the Barca team.

Folarin is okay. But if he was in Nigeria playing for 3SC. He won't get all of this hype. He is getting the hype because he is playing for Arsenal. There are many players with similar skillsets or maybe even better right now in Nigeria. After saying that Folarin is okay. But let us temper the hype. The next couple of years will be critical. I hope he goes out on loan to a championship side to get senior football experience. Seating on the bench behind Nkettiah, Aubameyang and Lacazette won't help him.

We have been brainwashed by the Premier League that it's the best in the world. Nonsense. It's the best brand
Roy Keane: ITV 02/25/14

He says that we are currently "brainwashed" into believing that the Premier League is the best competition in the world, and that we are now a long way off dominating the Champions League again.
Gary Neville: Mirror: 12/23/14

I think Spain’s by far the best league.

Most recently was Osimhen. I bet you if it was Chikatara at Arsenal. CE would also hype him. Chikatara or the Kolanut boy at 18 displayed better skills than Folarin in the local league. But he was playing at Abia FC, so no hyping. They even dismissed him as another local based payer.

No one is calling him the next Rooney or Messi, we're justing highlighting him as a potential talent for Nigeria.
