Former Liberia striker, George Oppong Weah has rated former Super Eagles midfielder, Austine Okocha as the most skillful and highly technical player ahead of Black Stars’ Abedi Pele.
Wear won the 1995 World Best Player, European Best Player and Africa Best Player after painting the European league with his goals in the colours of AC Milan.
He revealed that though Abedi Pele’s creative in nature,however, Okocha appears far more skillful with the ball.
“Abedi is a strong player, he’s a creative player but Jay Jay is more skillful. Even me, Jay Jay has more techniques than
me. All the things that Jay Jay does on the field, we don’t even do one percent of it. So Jay Jay is a legend when it comes
to that; he is very creative, he is very smart and he knows how to do tricks,” Weah said.
”For me I don’t do tricks, I will score a good goal and when I am
squeezed up, I know how to run around. But to put the ball on the ground and play with it, I give it to Jay Jay; he is an entertainer.”
