NFF Did Not Force Ighalo’s Return On Super Eagles’ Coach


Technical Director of Nigeria Football Federation, Austin Eguavoen, says that neither the NFF nor its president Amaju Piñnick forced Odion Ighalo’s return to the Super Eagles on Gernot Rohr, reports

Speaking with the media in Abuja on Tuesday, Eguavoen said Odion Ighalo was interested in returning to the Super Eagles and that was why Gernot Rohr recalled him from his retirement.


Ighalo called it quits with the national team in 2019 stating that he wanted to give younger players the opportunity to develop.

“Ighalo was not forced or begged to come out of retirement. I am sure Ighalo showed interest having been contacted about a return to the Super Eagles, that is why his name appeared in the list of invitees. You cannot force anybody to comeback to play for the national team,” Eguavoen stated.
