Odion Ighalo hints on possible return to Super Eagles
Manchester United striker, Odion Ighalo, in a latest statement has hint on a possible return to the Nigerian national team.
Ighalo, who retired from international scene in 2019 stated then that the stress of travelling between China and Nigeria was one of his reasons of leaving the team.
But since Ighalo moved to England in January, joining United on loan from Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua, there are hopes of him having time than before.
This week, the 30-year-old extended that deal until January 2021.
The turn of events has made Ighalo to reconsider his availability for the Super Eagles.
“I am still in contact with Gernot Rohr and Amaju Pinnick, and they congratulated me on my loan deal,” Ighalo told Brila FM.
“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.”
