Jay-Jay Okocha And Sam Allardyce Recreate Hilarious Dance Celebration At Bolton Legends Match
| Last updated
Sam Allardyce and Jay-Jay Okocha reunited this afternoon at the University of Bolton Stadium, with the pair in attendance for a charity match involving several iconic Bolton legends.
After the Nigerian scored in the match, he ran over to the touchline to celebrate with former club manager Allardyce, where the pair - and longtime friends - recreated a dance routine.
The event itself featured a number of former players from the club's time in the Premier League, who made up a 'Bolton Legends XI'. Under Allardyce, Bolton finished as high as 6th in the 2004/05 season, helping them reach Europe for the very first time.
Many of the stars from that campaign were present, including Kevin Davies, Ivan Campo and Stelios.
As you can see from the video (via CONTENTbible), Okocha didn't hesitate after scoring this afternoon, running straight over to the touchline to greet his former boss, who first earned promotion with Bolton back in 2001.
It was a great spectacle for fans of the club, who got to see some cult icons returning to their former stomping ground.
Spaniard Ivan Campo was one of the former England manager's best signings for Bolton, having convinced the Real Madrid man to leave the climes of Spain, initially on loan, back in 2002.
Club legend Kevin Davies was also present, a striker who scored 74 goals for the League One side during a decade long spell.

The Allardyce/Okocha dance has a back story, with the original dating back to 2002, when the former PSG midfielder first arrived at the Reebok.
Going on to make 124 appearances for Bolton, both he and Allardyce left the club in 2006 - signalling the end of era.
