Official: Okocha Voted Best Bolton Wanderers Player Of Last 20 Years


Super Eagles legend Austin Okocha has been voted the best Bolton Wanderers player from the past twenty years in a poll conducted by the official website of the Trotters.

Bolton Wanderers pulled off a transfer coup when the attacking midfielder joined the club on a free transfer after the 2002 Fifa World Cup, and he captured the hearts of not only the Bolton faithful, but football fans across the country for his silky skills.

Okocha appeared in 145 matches for Bolton and was instrumental in the club reaching the final of the 2004 League Cup after scoring two free kick goals in the first leg of the semifinal against Aston Villa.

In his second season with Bolton, the 1998 World Cup star was appointed captain of the club following the retirement of Guðni Bergsson.

Okocha was chosen ahead of Kevin Davies, World Cup winner Youri Djorkaeff, goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen and ex-Real Madrid star Ivan Campo in that order.

Nicolas Anelka, Kevin Nolan, Gudni Bergsson, Fernando Hierro and Stelios Giannakopoulos complete the top ten of the best ever Bolton Wanderers players to play at Reebok/Macron Stadium.
