“He is matured man and understand the reasons he took the decision at the age of 27 with his career still blossoming.

“I think his decision should be respected and taken in good faith.

According to the administrator, Nigerians should support him in retirement.

“Nigerians should continue to support him in retirement. That’s the best way to make him happy and feel wanted. There is no point putting him under undue pressure.”

Kaoje added that the idea to beg him to come back to the national team after making the decision is wrong but should be a lesson to the nation to always “make hay when sun shine”.
