Ighalo hints at returning to Super Eagles team

Manchester United striker, Odion lghalo, has revealed he is considering returning to the Super Eagles after one year in retirement.

lghalo had announced his retirement from international duty with Nigeria after his last outing at the Africa cup of nations.

He said having to travel the distance between China, where he played for Shanghai Shenhua to Nigeria for national duty was affecting him so he had to retire to allow the young ones take over.

Odion lghalo however moved to England in January, joining Manchester United on loan and recently extended his loan deal with the Old Trafford outfit until January 2021.

Since his retirement, Victor Osimhen has been leading the Super Eagles attack with the forward scoring three goals during the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying games against the Republic of Benin and Lesotho.

Ighalo has now revealed that he has not given up on a return to the Super Eagles team.

“I am still in contact with Gernot Rohr and Amaju Pinnick, and they congratulated me on my loan deal. I am still thinking about returning to the national team, but right now I want to concentrate on my club career.

“I left the national team because of the distance between Nigeria and China, but now that I am in Manchester and just like life and in my career, you never can tell.” he told Brilla FM.
