No regrets not winning the Premier League

Football legend Austin Jay Jay Okocha has revealed that he has no regrets not winning the Premier League title during his time at Bolton Wanderers. In mid-2000, Bolton were regulars at the top end of the Premier League table with Okocha as a main stay in their midfield. Speaking to Goal.com, the former footballer revealed that he was happy to help the club qualify for the Europa League and challenge for
European places. "I have no regrets that I did not win the Premier League’

He said. “I would have been regretting my time in England if I had not left any legacy. Some people are lucky enough to be at the right place at the right time; they won even without playing many games. But, the most important thing for me is the opportunity.  "I think I maximized my opportunity at Bolton, changing the mindset of the people from when I arrived till the time I left. Bolton was one of the relegation candidates when I got there but we took the club to another level and even had the opportunity to play for the first time in the Europa League’ he enthused.
The Super Eagles legend however admits the club never set out to challenge the title.
"So when I look back at what I achieved at Bolton, I think it makes me happy because it was never on our agenda to go for the title", he said.
The Super Eagles legend joined Bolton in 2002 on a free transfer from PSG and spent four years at the club.
