Ex Nigerian international, Victor Ikpeba, has said that he will cut off his dreadlocks if Arsenal Football Club wins the English Premiership in the 2012/2013 season. The retired footballer who is presently one of the soccer analysts on SuperSports TV made the statement shortly after the fixture between Manchester City and Arsenal on Sunday.

Back in the day Victor Ikpeba was one of the few Nigerian internationals who had very brilliant careers in Europe. The footballer, however, is most remembered by Nigerians for his penalty kick against Cameroon in the 2000 Nations Cup final.

The famous penalty kick had hit the crossbar, bounced off it, and landed behind the line, which makes it a goal. However, Tunisian Referee, Mourad Daami, had not given the goal. Ikpeba too had not helped the situation as he had put his hands on his head conceding the loss of the penalty. The decision by the referee had more or less cost Nigeria the cup.

Meanwhile, the Gunners had indeed put up a good performance on Sunday to hold the English Premiership title holder to a 1-1 draw. As a retired footballer, it is expected that Ikpeba should know that it could be too early predict who would win the English Premiership. He might have been joking about it though, however it might be a good thing to see what the ex footballer looks like again without the dreads!

  4. Ikpeba is so naïve and visionless even in his EPL analysis. Who gives a damn about a dirty dreadlock. He should go jump in front of the train for all I care. Rubbish!
