Former Nigerian star Jay-Jay Okocha has predicted club to win the Champions League this season
Jay-Jay Okocha was in charge of the Nigeria national team at his time. He now wants Paris Saint-Germain to win the UEFA Champions League.
Okocha, who used to be a midfielder for Paris Saint-Germain, said that Lionel Messi would win the Champions League and bring it to the Parc des Princes. Okocha said that he wouldn’t be surprised if Messi, who will be 35 when the competition starts, wins.
PSG was so close to winning the Champions League in 2020 but eventually lost to Bayern Munich in the championship match by a score of 1-0.
The Parisians hope that Messi’s great run of form this season will be enough to win them the Champions League. Messi was brought in by the Parisians to help Christophe Galtier’s team win the championship the year before.
The first leg of the Champions League round of 16 encounters between the French Ligue 1 champions and Bayern Munich will take place on February 15. The French squad will use this as their chance to get revenge on Bayern Munich.
When asked by Betting Friends if Paris Saint-Germain could win the Champions League, Okocha said, “Absolutely, definitely.”
It will happen in the end, that’s for sure. They will win the Champions League trophy, there is not the slightest question in my opinion. The only thing that is still not clear is when it will happen. When can the personnel begin their workday?

I think they just added a few players who will give the younger players hope that they can also do well. I think what’s stopping them from winning the title right now is that they don’t think they can.
He went on to say that both the preseason and the first game of the Ligue 1 season had been promising, with the player putting on great show after great show. Even though Leo is back from his vacation after the World Cup, he is still making a lot of people happy.
The speaker added, “It would not at all surprise me if he genuinely ignited again this season.”
