Nollywood superstar, Nkem Owoh, popularly called Osuofia in the Nigerian movie industry, took time off from his busy schedule to speak with Completesportsnigeria.com on how he thinks the heavyweight FA Cup clash between Chelsea and Manchester City on Sunday will pan out.
“The match hopefully will be interesting and I expect Chelsea to win it. Why, because we cannot win the Premier League title so this match is important,” Osuofia, a staunch Chelsea supporter, told Completesportsnigeria.com.
“The Champions League is still there but the FA Cup will be easier to win than the Champions League. The quality of teams in the Champions League makes it a more difficult trophy to win, although I know they can do it.”
Osuofia is even more excited about the current form of Super Eagles midfielder Mikel Obi for Chelsea, who has had more playing time under interim manager Guus Hiddink, a contrast from the reins of Jose Mourinho.
“Mikel Obi has been playing regularly and that is good for him and Nigeria,” Osuofia added.
“I don’t watch him play always because of the nature of our job. Most times we are on location so I make do with match highlights.
“But I was impressed with the few matches I watched and I hope he continues doing his best.”
The Chelsea versus Manchester City match kicks off 5pm Nigerian time.
