Exclusive Interview With Jonathan Akpoborie

Jonathan Akpoborie is arguably the most prolific forward of Nigerian decent in the history of German football.

Akpoborie started his professional career at Julius Berger, before moving to United State of America.

He went on to play for 1. FC Saarbrücken, FC Carl Zeiss Jena, Stuttgart Kickers, Waldhof Mannheim, before finally joining top-flight F.C. Hansa Rostock, VfB Stuttgart and then VfL Wolfsburg.

He was selected by Nigeria for the 1992 and 2000 Africa Cup of Nations where he won bronze and silver medals respectively.

Our correspondent Daniel Ozeghe caught up with him (Akpoborie) during Our live coverage of the NCC Tennis League Cup match in Lagos between Team CBN Futures and Team Tech Vibe on Sunday, October 1st 2017 when he came to show support to the sport.

In this interview with Tennisng.com he opened up on his believe in Nigerian tennis players and coaches.

Good afternoon, Jonathan. How’ve you been?

I’m very fine, thank you Daniel.

Are you aware that most people don’t know that you’re enthusiastic about tennis?

Yes, I am. Many footballers and sportsmen in general have got love for other sports asides the one they’re popularly known for. An example would be Rio Ferdinand who recently expressed his desire to become a professional boxer. Usain Bolt is another example as well as Michael Jordan. I play tennis a lot these days.

We know you so much for football but let’s talk about the fact that you’ve been watching tennis, encouraging these young one’s. What have you seen concerning their talent and and what do you think they need to take their game to the next level?

Wow! I think it is actually a general problem in Nigeria regarding talents because we need to actually produce more competitions like the NCC Tennis Cup for them to compete. When I go to other counties like Germany I see all of these same talents as a matter of fact they are not as talented as the lads we have in Nigeria but they have different tournaments as well as programmes for everybody all through the year. By the time these guys are growing up they go automatically into the ATP but in Nigeria they play one tournament today, next maybe in three or four months they play another one. The break is a big problem. We have talents in Nigeria all through all the sports. In tennis I’m surprised that we have so many players and it is surprising that the number of tournaments is not just enough. The NCC Tennis League is like gold.

How do you analyze the young ones you’ve seen?

Like I said, the sky is the limit but we have to organise more tournaments for them to compete in because the competitions bring a lot of improvements for them and it will be welcomed for Nigerian tennis if we do that for them.

Final words. Don’t you think they need some tactical coaching to enhance their game?

I think Nigeria is covered in that area because we have a lot of coaches. I’ve seen them around doing their job, trying to mentor the players. The problem is actually these tournaments that we organise for them especially the young ones so that they can grow into the ATP and WTA tours as the case may be.

Many thanks for your time Jonathan

You are welcome Daniel.

  29. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  36. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  37. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  38. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  40. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  41. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  46. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  97. An impressive share, I just given this onto a colleague who was doing a little analysis on this. And he in fact bought me breakfast because I found it for him.. smile.

  118. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  126. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  127. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.
