Nigerian Super Eagle Legend Austine Okocha has explained why his former club, Eintracht Frankfurt will beat Rangers in the UEFA Europa League despite the struggle by Rangers. Okocha played for four years with the Eagles and netted 18 goals in 90 appearances for the former Bundesliga champions. The rangers have three countrymen of Okocha who are considered good to score the league for the club, they include, Joe Aribo, Calvin Bassey, and Leon Balogun in the squad.
However, Okocha having faith in his former club has pitched a tent with the Die Adler to grab the trophy against all odds.
Okocha while speaking to Bundesliga.com said, “To see Frankfurt in the final means the world – I am an Eintracht fan and I know how important it is for the fans because they have waited so long to be able to witness this magic game,”
“I’m so happy for the club, the players, the fans, and hopefully, they will do us the favor of winning the final!”, Okocha added.
Although Okocha is certain about his former club but said the Rangers will not be a child play that should be taken for granted if the trophy must be brought home.
He explained, “It will be a tough one, but Frankfurt should go and try and dominate the game,”
“The first goal is so important, rather than trying to chase the game. They should trust in their ability and go for it! I wish Frankfurt the best of luck, and I can’t wait to see them celebrate!”
Eintracht Frankfurt could not be beaten in the UEFA Europa League this season and knocked out favorites Barcelona in the quarter-final.
Oliver Glasner’s side has also scored in all their 12 games in the competition.
