The sportsman cum television presenter added there was no need for lies or pretense as to how deplorable things have become.

“At a time when everything in the country is looking like it is declining, it would be very hard and difficult for me to tell a lie that Nigerian football is doing fantastically well in Africa.
Things are very bad at the moment and different situations are taking their toll on every sector and when players are happy it will translate on the pitch.
A lot of people are criticising the players for not giving their best, which is for sure, but at the moment, our football is in decline and that doesn’t mean to say things cannot change.”
