Former Eintracht Frankfurt, Fenerbahce, Paris Saint-Germain, Bolton Wanderers, Qatar SC and Hull City player Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha, who surprised many by announcing his retirement in 2008 at the age of 34, has finally revealed the reason why he ended his football career early.

According to the former captain of the Super Eagles, lack of playing time prompted him to retire early from football.

“I must confess that not getting a lot of playing time was one of the main reasons why I retired from playing at a very young age,” the Nigerian told newsmen at a press conference.

“I believe that it is not worth it to train from Monday to Friday just to have 20 minutes on the pitch or sit on the bench on Saturday. I am very competitive.”
Jay Jay scored 14 goals in 74 appearances for the Super Eagles.
