Jay Jay now new boss at Delta FA



Former Super Eagles captain, and ex international Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha has been elected as the Delta State FA chairman.

Okocha, 41, polled 26 out of 27 votes to win the election and replace Amaju Pinnick, who vacated the seat after becoming the President of the Nigeria Football Federation in September, 2014.

The former PSG, Bolton Wanderers and Hull City player becomes one of the few former footballers to enjoy such huge transition from the field to the boardroom in Nigerian football.

The three-time World Cup player is presently head of the NFF Technical Study Group.
