Ighalo undecided about Super Eagles return

Nigeria forward Odion Ighalo is yet to decide whether or not to return to the Super Eagles.

The Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr and NFF President Amaju Pinnick have approached the 32-year-old about a probable return.

“They have been in contact with me about the possibility of coming back, Amaju and coach,” Ighalo told ESPN.

“I don’t know. I have not said yes or no. I haven’t made any decision concerning the national team.”

The former Manchester United forward announced his exit from international football after the 2019 Afcon in Egypt, where he won the Golden Boot.

He has spent his career at Al-Shabab, where he scored nine goals and added three assists in 13 league appearances during the 2020/21 season.

He has now scored nine goals in ten games this season, the most recent of which came on Thursday in a 3-0 win over Al Tai.

In his recent interview, Rohr explained why he was keen on having the experienced player back.

“We miss his leadership, we miss his experience and we miss his goals,” the tactician told Completesports.

“He was the top scorer at the 2019 Afcon qualifiers and also the Afcon itself. That’s why I included him on our provisional squad.

  1. Ighalo is a very good player at the front of goal post, I will strongly advise him to stick to his decision and focus on his club career since he has announced his retirement from international football

  2. He should consider it
    It is good move for amaju pinnik, he is a good player and his experience and what he will bring to the team matters. They need someone like ighalo to lead them, instruct them to play well, his presence in the team is good
    I love that idea
