“I think the Nigerian league is coming up. Most of these ex-players are in Europe. And you cannot be waiting for that opportunity to come [to coach in Europe] once you see that you do not have that opportunity over there. Come back home, and make an impact. That is what I did, and this is my second season here. And whatever things that are still going to happen, If I am still going back to Europe, that will happen. But I cannot sit over there, and be the waiting for that opportunity. Come back home. I will advise them to come back home and impact the league.” he said.
