Speaking on the jersey, Kanu stated that he likes it but urged the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to carry ex-internationals along before deciding on such next time.

“I do like the jersey but in the future when they are doing things like this, ex-internationals should be carried along in order to feel our own opinion,” Kanu told Goal. “If not, we will accept whatever is thrown at us even if we don’t like it.”
