Austin Jay-Jay Okocha, a former Paris Saint-Germain star, has made predictions about the new Bundesliga season.
He predicted the team that could win this season’s Bundesliga title.
Okocha, who played for German club Eintracht Frankfurt between 1992 and 1996, also predicted the player who would win the Bundesliga Golden Boot.
When asked by Sportskeeda who will win the Bundesliga Golden Boot this season in the absence of Robert Lewandowski, who joined Barcelona and Erling Haaland, who joined Manchester City, Okocha picked Leipzig’s Christopher Nkunku.
Okocha said, “Lewandowski dominated the league for the past decade or so when it comes to goalscoring. It is difficult to see who will follow suit because he was consistent like no other player I have seen in the Bundesliga.
“Maybe Christopher Nkunku from Leipzig, but it is very important who you are playing with and the kind of service you are getting. Erling Haaland has left as well, who was pretty much Lewandowski’s main competitor, so it will be interesting to see who takes over this season. I am looking forward to seeing what happens, just like everyone else.”
Speaking on the team to win the Bundesliga title, Okocha added, “I hope other clubs can compete a bit more this season because it is getting a bit boring having Bayern’s name written on the title every season.
“Hopefully, Dortmund will have the belief that they can challenge Bayern, but other teams are not sleeping. They will fancy their chances of causing an upset this season, so I hope we will see more title competition this season.”
