Odion Ighalo, striker for Al Hilal, has struck back at supporters who are opposed to his reinstatement to the Super Eagles.
After announcing his retirement following Nigeria’s defeat to Algeria in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, the striker was returned to the national squad.
He came out of retirement. In November 2021, they will play a 2022 World Cup qualifier against Cape Verde.
However, some argue that the 32-year-old is impeding the prospects of younger players by not sticking to his resolve to retire.
Speaking with ESPN, the former Manchester United and Watford striker said, “I don’t pay attention to that. Everything they’re saying is their own cup of tea. At my age, I just signed for a new team. This is my 11th team in my professional career.
“I have been called up, I will take my bag and I will go to represent my country and give my best on 100%.
“As long as I come out from every game and I’m satisfied with my performance — whether it is a win, loss, or draw — then that’s it. I’m a professional footballer.
“This is what I’ve been doing for 17-18 years so why would I be worried about what people say?”
