Former Super Eagles captain Jay-Jay Okocha has revealed he would have liked to play alongside Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, and Angel Di Maria in the new Paris Saint-Germain team.
From 1998 to 2002, Okocha played for the Ligue 1 champions.
During his time at PSG, he helped the club win the Trophee des Champions (1998) and the UEFA Intertoto Cup (2001).
Since Okocha’s tenure in Paris, the French club has come a long way, with huge funding from their Qatari owner drawing some of the world’s best talent.
Last season PSG reached the UEFA Champions League final for the first time, narrowly losing out to Bayern Munich, while tonight they will look to overturn a 2-1 deficit in the second leg of their semifinal against Manchester City.
Okocha admits that the current PSG side is far stronger than during his day, explaining that he would have enjoyed playing alongside their current crop of stars.
“I think PSG are working very well. They are almost where they want to be as they are getting closer to their goal of winning the Champions League,” the Nigerian told Canal+, as per ItaSportPress.
“They have laid a good foundation because all the great players want to play for PSG. I think they have to maintain these results and stay at the top.
“I, too, would have liked to play in this team. The current team is certainly stronger than it was when I was playing.”
