Super Eagles of Nigeria legend, Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha, has confessed that he would like to play in the current team of his former club, Paris Saint-Germain.

Parisians take on Manchester City in the second leg of the Champions League semi-final tie at the Etihad on Tuesday having lost the first leg 1-0 in Paris last Wednesday.

Okocha, a former Super Eagles captain, said the French champions are putting suitable structures in place, which has seen them as title contenders in Europe.

Okocha, who joined PSG in 1998, also admitted that the current team, having Kylian Mbappe, Neymar, among others, is stronger now than when he was there.

The former midfield maestro, alongside Nicolas Anelka and current PSG manager, Mauricio Pochettino, helped the French side win the UEFA Intertoto Cup in 2001.

PSG made it to the final of the UEFA Champions League last season narrowly to eventual winners Bayern Munich.

Okocha is impressed with how much work his former side has put into reaching such dizzy heights and wished he was still part of the playing personnel.

“I think PSG are working very well. They are almost where they want to be as they are getting closer to their goal of winning the Champions League,” Okocha told Canal+

“They have laid a good foundation because all the great players want to play for PSG. I think they have to maintain these results and stay at the top.

“I, too, would have liked to play in this team. The current team is certainly stronger than it was when I was playing.”
