Hull signing Okocha critical of Qatar football

"The life was good in Qatar but I did not enjoy the football," he added. "For me, 12 months was enough. The standard was low, but not that low. It was OK but the ambition was not there from the players.

"It was like playing for nothing. I didn't like that feeling. I had signed a two-year contract. I had another year left, but it was my option and I didn't want to take it.

"I thought I would go there and enjoy it, play for two or three years and that would be it. After two or three months I knew I wanted to come back. I did not want to finish my career like that."
