Former Nigeria international and coach of JS Hercules of Finland Daniel Amokachi has likened Ikorodu United Dutch coach Theo de Jong to legendary Dutch men Rinus Michel and Johan Cruyff.
Amokachi made the comparison on his official twitter handle when one of his followers tried to play down his comment on the coaching abilities of the Dutch man, shortly after he lead troubled Ikorodu United to a 1-0 win away at Heartland FC of Owerri.
” Mr. Theo de Jong. He is a legend. People don’t understand what a guru we have working in Nigeria” He posted.
A follower of the former Everton forward nicknamed the Bull in his playing days responded to his post, by replying that the praises by Amokachi was solely because the coach was able to beat Heartland.
His response to the reply was a straight post clearly stating that his praises is way beyond the victory over Heartland before liking him to Dutch coaching legends, Johan Cruyff and Rinus Michels.
” Heartland has very little to do with it. He’s one of those who invented modern game. Ever heard of Johan Cruyff, Rinus Michels?
