Super Eagles Leon Balogun said, he’s only focusing on football and not paying attention to the rivalry between Nigeria and Ghana.
Nigeria and Ghana have been involved in one of the biggest rivalries in African football and both side had shares of joy and pains.
However, the rivalry drifted away from football recently, as the debate on who made the best jollof rice between Nigerian and Ghanian dominates the social media.
Asked, if he is enjoying the debate on social media, Balogun said: “I tried to leave the rivalry aside, without saying that I don’t respect it, but it doesn’t matter to me and what my matters is my preparations for the game and Where i want to go with the team, which is the World Cup.”
“I don’t care about the jollof, I leave that to the people.” “I’m trying to leave the rivalry for the fans and I try to do my work on the pitch and this kind of derby is big and required special characters, which I can bring , but I do not need to voice it ” The Glasgow Rangers defender said.
