However, the Olympic gold medalist has said he described Okocha as his “senior brother.”

“I don’t have a problem with Jay Jay. He’s my ‘senior brother’. We speak the same language, eat, drink and play together,” he told Brila FM.

“Our families have good relationship and when I say we’re brothers, we are more than brothers; so people should not peddle such rumours.”
