Austin JJ Okocha Tips PSG To Win 2019 Champions League


Former Super Eagles captain, Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha, has tipped his former club Paris Saint-Germain, to win the UEFA Champions League soon.

Despite heavy investment in recent years from the club’s Qatari ownership, PSG have not made it past the Champions League quarter-finals, since they were knocked out at the semi-final stage in the 1994/1995 edition.

Jay-Jay Okocha, however, remains confident that the Ligue 1 champions has what it takes to win the prestigious title. Speaking with Goal, he said;

“I have no doubt that [at] some point they will win the Champions League, [it] is [a] matter of when.
“You know because not just as a former player of PSG, I’m [a] big fan of the club too, and I also put pressure on the team to try and win the Champions League because that is the only thing I believe that the club is missing for now.
“I think they brought some players to help the younger [players] believe that is possible. And for me maybe that is the little thing that is missing: belief that they can do it.
“And once they win the first one, I think that won’t be that difficult again.”
