The Nigeria international and once Everton's regular couldn't hide his frustration of seeing  his former side's arch rivals being on verge of winning their first English top-flight title,  when asked about the 2019-20 Premier League campaign currently on hold.

Speaking to the ESPN the 39-year-old said: "As an Everton Blue I would prefer that the league is cancelled so that Liverpool don't win it. That is me speaking as an Evertonian, I don't want them to win."

However, the Nigeria centre-back was swift to compromise on his decision that could've sound vile to scores of football faithfuls who are backing the Reds to win the League this term following their 25 points lead at top of the table.

"But as a football fan, and as someone who loves the game, I think Liverpool have done well and do deserve to win it," he added.

"To lead the league by 25 points is not easy. If you look at their form from last season, they only lost the league to City by a point or so. Now they lead by 23 or 25 points, I think that is a lot.

"As a someone who loves the game, it is unfair, if you are leading by over 20 points not to win, so I think they should win it. They have worked hard to get to this point."
