Nigerians have taken to social media to make a mockery of the no 10 football jersey presented to President Muhammadu Buhari by the FIFA President in Abuja.
Naija News reports that after attending the start of the Aisha Buhari Cup on Wednesday in Lagos State, FIFA President, Gianni Infantino and the CAF President, Patrice Motsepe visited the Presidential Villa.
Infantino during the visit to the State House presented a number 10 jersey, a FIFA logo, and a football to President Buhari.
The No. 10 jersey is mostly worn by icons in football who are greatly skilled.
Notable footballers across the world who have worn the number 10 jerseys are Pele, Diego Maradona, Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldinho, and Lionel Messi.
While others only see the jersey present to President Buhari as a ‘national development’, Nigerians with the ‘BigEye’ have made a troll out of it.
This is as a youth advocate, Oluyemi Fasipe took to his Twitter page to post a photo showing the moment FIFA president was presenting Buhari with the iconic jersey.
He captioned: “It is finished for Chelsea. Sorry.”
