Jay Jay Okocha made appearance at the Emirates on Sunday and was a big attraction for fans outside the stadium.
Okocha was in the company of Chuba Iwobi, his nephew’s – Alex Iwobi – father, as they made their way to see Arsenal’s pre-season friendly against Olympique Lyon.
The former Eagles and Bolton Wanderers captain was obviously a recognizable figure and frequently stopped for pictures by fans.
At some point the 45 year-old appeared embarrassed by the amount of attention he had attracted, he pulled his sweat shirt over his face to hide his identity.
Per, Osasu Obayiuwana, I just can’t walk with @IAmOkocha in peace, after the @arsenal v @OL friendly at the @emirates
Stadium? Look at this…😂🤣
