Forlan who has lived in Germany for some years said that European life is in sharp contrast to what is depicted on TV and the media and that it takes hard labour for one to succeed there.
While revealing that he owns a farm in Nigeria that is cultivated and tilled by workers under his payroll, he stated that starting a business in Europe can be frustrating and if the paperwork for approval and takeoff does not deter you, the taxes will.
Forlan said in pidgin:
"People dey say Europe, Europe...Say once you come na heaven you dey come. No be heaven. Na the same thing wey dey here na im still dey Nigeria. Nigeria, God bless us wey be say if our leaders dey do well, nobody suppose leave the country dey come Europe."
He advised potential migrants to channels their supposed money for travelling into a business that will yield returns in the country as he too will soon return to Nigeria.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a Nigerian lady was dragged on social media for calling the country hellfire after travelling to Kenya.
She took to her Twitter page to share some pictures of herself in Kenya and captioned them: "Don’t let anybody deceive you; Nigeria is Hellfire lite."
Aina's tweet did not go down well with Nigerians who flooded the comment section of her post to defend their country.
A tweep with the handle @just1keji expressed displeasure over the tweet, saying comparing Nigeria to Kenya is wrong.
