This is so funny, Jayjay Okocha finally explained why he dribbled Oliver Kahn

Jayjay Okocha was one of Nigeria's best players of all time, he made some last-longing impressions on people, and football lovers around the world. He was known for his fantastic dribbles on the field of play.

Jayjay Okocha, who is officially known as Augustine Azuka Okocha, was a prolific football player who played as an attacking midfielder. He was born in Enugu state, but his parents lived in Iwo local government, Osun state, Nigeria.

Ethnically, Okocha is from Anioma, a subgroup of Igbo derivatives. His elder brother whose name is Emmanuel is a former player who played for the Nigerian national team. One of the dramatic dribbles Okocha made in his history in football, was the dribbling of Oliver Kahn.

Oliver Kahn is a German former football goalkeeper, who is regarded as one of the greatest and most successful goalkeepers of all time. Oliver Kahn was recognised for his goalkeeping technique, agility, reflexes, distribution and commanding of his goalkeeping area. Unfortunately, this great keeper was dribbled shamelessly by Jay-Jay Okocha.

Okocha later explained why he dribbled Oliver Khan tirelessly before scoring his goal. He made this confession on Teju Babyface show. He said that his first international destination as a football player was Germany, and that he never knew he was black until he got to Germany, where racism was greatly practiced at that time.

He said that he wanted to pay them back in a legal way, and that was how it struck him that the only legal way to pay these people back was to dribble them until they start eating grass, and that was exactly what he did. But it was funny and painful that Oliver Kahn suffered the most before Okocha.
