According to Babayaro, the exercise would take place both in classroom and on the pitch, playing side-by-side with the legends. Babayaro said:

Emmanuel Emenike on his path is also an AFCON winner having inspired the Super Eagles to glory at the 2013 AFCON. He finished the tournament’s joint highest goal scorer with four goals alongside Mubarak Wakaso.

The media was awash that the former Super Eagles winger had been appointed as the youth team coach at the Spanish club. Consequently, football fans and well-wishers took to social media as well as text messages to congratulate him on the new position.
He has however taken to social media to deny the claims, branding the report as ‘fake’ and then urged the public to disregard the news.
