In the video which was shared on Twitter, he praised the South African side for fielding better players than Nigeria, “Believe me, I prefer play Nigeria than Bafana Bafana because I have this experience to play against Nigeria.

“For me, Bafana they have fantastic players and its not easy to play Bafana Bafana,”

He went further, “I am ready for Nigeria, if they want to play two times in Nigeria, we play two times in Nigeria.
