LEGENDS OF SOCCER

A legend is someone who is exceptional and the finest at what he does.

We have many legends in soccer, which I divide into three categories: late legends, retired legends, and active legends. The late ones are individuals who have passed away but whose accomplishments should not be forgotten, such as Diego Maradona, Johan Cruyff, Alfredo Di Stefano, and others,the retired ones are those who have hung up their boots but were the best during their playing days, such as Didier Drogba, Pele, Zinedine Zidane, Michael Platini, Thierry Henry, Ronaldinho, and many others, whereas the active ones are those who are still shaking the ground with their skills and professionalism,Just to name a few, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Neymar, and Robert Lewandowski. All of these personalities were/are legends, but I will like to focus on one in particular who I believe is underated and deserves more appreciation, and that is JAY JAY OKOCHA. I will go into more detail about him further down.

JAY JAY OKOCHA: WHO IS HE?

He is a Nigerian from Enugu state who was born on the 14th of August 1973 and played professional football for Nigeria and a number of major clubs.

Thanks for joining in with the #legends tag. Unfortunately I cannot put this forward for extra curation as the vote has to justify the effort. 2 minute post which is basically 2 paragraphs and a list of career achievements is not something I can justify as deserving.

Just always remember reward has to justify the post. Many miss the mark as their is just not enough body of actual written content. Nothing wrong with the subject matter it is just lacking any substance, Look at the other legends posts and then compare yours and you will see what I am saying. Keep trying as that way you will succeed.
