Hull Citys Jayjay Okocha Sweeps A Free Kick Into The Box Where An Picture Id834177710?s=28

Former Super Eagles captain Austin Jay-Jay Okocha has been named in Paris-Saint-Germain's team of the decade from 2000 to 2010 which is an incredible one for the Nigerian. 

During his active playing time, Okocha was one of the best midfielders in the world considering his brilliant dribbling style while playing for the Super Eagles and club sides. 

But despite his superb performances while playing football, Jay-Jay Okocha was unable to win the African best player of the year award. 

Okocha and Brazilian legend Ronaldinho played together years back at Paris-Saint-Germain in which the club enjoyed their stay.

After impressing at the World Cup in France, Okocha joined PSG from Turkish club Fenerbahce in 1998 for £14 million, making him the most expensive African player at the time.



Okocha made 84 appearances for PSG, scored 12 goals and won the French Super Cup in 1998 and UEFA Inter Toto Cup in 2001. 

And after playing for Nigeria at the 2002 World Cup in Korea/Japan, Okocha left Paris-Saint-Germain for a move to Bolton in the Premier League. 

Ronaldinho on the other hand signed for PSG in 2001 and made 55 appearances scoring 17 goals for the French side.
