Ejuke is not the new Okocha – Amokachi

Chidera-Ejuke

Former Super Eagles striker, Daniel Amokachi, has played down comparisons between legendary midfielder Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha and Chidera Ejuke.

Ejuke, who plays for CSKA Moscow, has been a revelation since breaking into the Nigerian national team, putting in eye-catching displays.

This has led to fans comparing him with Okocha.

But Amokachi, posited that there is no bases for comparison as there can never be another Okocha.

“We normally have players who play similar like Jay Jay but not Jay Jay, there will never be another Jay Jay because his kind comes once in a life time,” Amokachi said on his radio show ‘The Bull’s Pit’ on Brila FM.

“God doesn’t bring the same people into this world so the legacy of Jay Jay remains his legacy. So you cannot get another Jay Jay, it’s either you get another player who is far better than Jay Jay but you cannot get a player like Jay Jay. He was so good they named him twice.”

Ejuke has scored three goals and provided two assists in 11 appearances in all competitions for CSKA Moscow this season.
