Amokachi Backs Ighalo Super Eagles Return

Amokachi Backs Ighalo Super Eagles return

Former Nigeria International, Daniel Amokachi says he is in support of Odion Ighalo making a return to the super Eagles.

The former Super Eagles assistant coach said this on his radio programme "Bull's Pit" on Brila FM.

"He wasn't pained about the abuse directed at him but took offence when his family was involved.

"This made him come to the decision to resign because he believes his family doesn't deserve such abuse. He felt why should he sacrifice his life for a country that doesn't show him love.

" Quality-wise you need Ighalo on the field 120 per cent and by the special grace he will still wear the number nine Jersey for Nigeria."

Ighalo has been touted to make a return to the super Eagles after retiring from international football following immediately the 2019 AFCON ended.

The 30-year-old former Super Eagles forward has scored four goals in eight appearances in all competitions for Manchester united this season before football was suspended due to the  coronavirus pandemic.
