Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Daniel Amokachi once forced himself into a substitution without his coach's consent during his spell with Premier League side Everton.

The Toffees were leading by 2-1 in the 1995 semi-final FA Cup clash against Tottenham and Spurs seemed to be coming back into the game after Jurgen Klinsmann pulled one goal back.

Everton striker Paul Rideout suffered a knee problem and he was being assessed by the medical team before deciding if he could get back on the pitch.
