Former Chelsea left full back Celestine Babayaro has reached out to Super Eagles defender Jamilu Collins to work hard on some specific grey areas in his game as it will help him become an accomplished player in his role.
Babayaro who also played as the left back of the Super Eagles admonished the Paderborn defender who has played in the Super Eagles last five games ahead of Brian Idowu not to rest yet.
According to Babayaro he is still very young and learning his trade although at the age of 24, he should have been a lot better by now he has however made significant progress and that’s why he is in the Super Eagles.
” I like his natural feel of having a left footed player play as the left full back, it brings a natural balance to the team. Collins is solid in going forward and also in his movements with the rest of the defence but in one on one duels he is a bit too nice”, Babayaro told Owngoalnigeria.com.
” You’ve have to be nasty in tackles, I mean go hard at times. Collins is not that type from what I’ve seen but that is how many modern day full backs play. However he need to mix it up with a little bit of nastiness particularly in tackles”, he concluded.
