Former Nigeria international his Daniel Amokachi says he is in support of Odion Ighalo making a return to the Super Eagles.
Ighalo has been touted to make a return to the Eagles after retiring from international football following immediately the 2019 AFCON ended.
His impressive performance for Manchester United in his loan spell has also seen calls for his return to the Eagles.

And Amokachi posited that Ighalo’s quality is still needed in the team.
“Nigerians made Ighalo resign because of the kind of abuse he got,” Amokachi said 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.”
The former Watford striker’s loan deal at United was recently extended by parent club Shanghai Shenhua until January 2021.
In his first stint, he scored four goals in eight appearances for the Red Devils.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
