FORMER Super Eagles captain, Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha, has not stopped reflecting on the impact sports wear manufacturers, Puma had on his eventful career, long after he has hung his boots.
Okocha, who is a Puma ambassador was the cynosure of all eyes at the launch and opening of the new
Puma store at the Palms shopping mall Lekki Lagos said it was time for him to pay back. He promised to ensure the brand kits the national team.
According to Okocha, Puma’s entry into the country will impact positively on Nigerian sports due to it’s innovative and dynamic style and the opportunities it creates for communities within which it operates..
“It is a premium brand and we all stand to benefit from it here in Nigeria,” Okocha said, adding, “Puma extended my career and made it wonderful.
I am glad to be an ambassador of this brand. I’ll also, in my own little way, make sure that they start to kit our national team.
Puma will definitely make an impact here considering our huge population and the fashionable nature of Nigerians,” he said Puma’s General Manager, Eastern Europe /Middle East/ Africa and India, Mr Martyn Bowen, said that Puma has the ambition to be the fastest sports brand in the world and Nigeria will be a major beneficiary.
