Reactions trail throwback photo of Okocha dribbling past Antonio Conte

A throwback back picture of the Legendary Jay-Jay Okocha dribbling past Tottenham Hotspurs manager, Antonio Conte has surfaced online.

Okocha, as one of the greatest dribblers football has ever seen, came up against the former Chelsea, and Inter manager in a midfield battle.

The game was a Champions League clash between Fenerbahce and Juventus at Sukru Saracoglu Stadium on September 26, 1996.

The 49-year-old was then plying his trade in Turkey for Fenerbahce.

Antonio Conte on the other end was the captain for Juventus on the night.

The ex-Super Eagles captain produced a stellar performance playing in the number 10 position but it wasn't enough to salvage a point for his side as they lost by a lone goal at home to the Old Ladies.

Some fans have shared their thoughts on the picture. See some comments below:
