5 ex-super eagles legends who have gone broke now — #6 was found wandering on the streets begging (See Photos)
3. Taribo West
Former Super Eagles defender, Taribo West is perhaps the most successful Nigerian centre-back in history.
At the height of his career, he was regarded as one of the best defenders in Europe and was a key member of the Inter Milan squad between 1997 and 1999 and was also part of the victorious Olympic gold winning dream team side in 1996.
However, despite featuring for top sides in Europe such as AC Milan, Derby County, Kaiserslautern, Partizan and a brief spell in the Middle East with Qatari side, Al-Arabi Doha, Taribo is said to be in financial deep waters as the millions he made during his playing days seems to have been washed away by in a Tsunami.
He also made a bad investment in his marriage but now can be seen on Lagos streets preaching and trying his hands in winning souls for God a vocation he undertook towards the end of his career.
