“I would have cost around €150m in today’s transfer market” – Jay Jay Okocha

Football legend, Jay-Jay Okocha, has opined that he would have cost 150 million euros in today’s transfer market if football clubs were to employ his skills.

He said this while reacting the huge amount football clubs are currently paying to get players.

According to Jay Jay, who spoke in an interview with hurriyet, if he were to estimate his worth going by the current transfer market, clubs would be paying millions of euros to get him.

He said:

“Maybe 1 billion should have been paid for me.

They paid £106m for their defensive midfielder Chelsea. To a player from Portugal. I would have cost around €150m. My assists, dribbles… World football started to pay a lot of money. Such would be the numbers of players of this quality.”

The former Fenerbahçe player also spoke on how much he misses the club:

“It was a really difficult decision. I left very sadly. I was very happy in Fenerbahçe. Moreover, I married my wife in Turkey. My children were about to be born.

“When I went to the World Cup, I had no such thing in mind. After the matches in the World Cup, an offer came from PSG. Aziz Yildirim was the president. He didn’t want to send me. He didn’t even interview the PSG Club. This process has been very difficult. Despite my sadness, when such an offer came, I wanted to make money for Fenerbahçe.”
