Okocha reacts to Mesut Ozil’s tweet about him

Ozil and Okocha

Former Super Eagles captain, Jay-Jay Okocha, has backed Mesut Ozil to succeed at Fenerbahce.

During his official unveiling on Wednesday, Ozil described Okocha as the star he followed at Fenerbahce and recalled wearing his no.10 shirt.

“About 20-25 years ago, I was an immigrant Turkish kid who was running after the soccer ball with the Fenerbahce shirt with the number 10 Jay Jay Okocha written on his back in the streets of Gelsenkirchen.

“Thankfully, it was my honour to wear this jersey that I have been dreaming of for many years,” Ozil tweeted.

Okocha, who won two titles during his stint in Istanbul, tipped the ex-Arsenal star to boost Fenerbahce’s charge for the Super Lig crown this season.

“I was very happy. I did not know about the last tweet Mesut Ozil posted,” Okocha told Goal.

“It is very pleasing to be the idol of such a world star player, to inspire him.

“Mesut is a world-class player. It is a very good thing [for him] to come to Fenerbahce. I think he will definitely be successful in Fenerbahce.”
