How Scottish football club Dundee United became a Nigerian slang for fools

Share this story:
Dundee United in early 70s

It was in the 1970’s when Dundee United decides to visit Nigeria for their pre-season tour.

However they lost all their matches to local clubs in Nigeria (including 4:1 loss to Stationary Stores) among others.

This was at a time when Nigeria football was still growing, having never won the Nations Cup or even qualified for the World Cup.

This made Nigerians look at the Dundee Football a Club as fools, having come from Europe, play the champions league and have top players but still can’t manage a win among Local clubs with little or no facilities.

Ever since then, anybody that does something weird or unbelievable is regarded as a Dundee or Dundee United
