Ideye: Why I Turned Down Big Money Offer From China   ‎

Nigerian striker Brown Ideye has revealed that he turned down a big money move to China in order to succeed with Olympiakos.

Ideye joined the Greek giants from English Premier League side West Bromwich Albion last summer.


The 2013 Africa Cup of Nations winner, who recently helped Olympiakos clinch their 43rd league title, told BBC Sport he had set targets which he hopes to achieve with Olympiakos. 

"It was unbelievable money for the club and financially tempting for any footballer, but I chose to stay here.

"My family love it here, and clearly, happiness comes before money."

Ideye continued: "From where I come from (Nigeria), it's easy to hear people say go to China for the money but I'm happy here.

"Honestly, I don't have (a genuine reason to) leave Olympiakos. I have been shown love and this is the place to be right now.

"My ambitions are the same as Olympiakos' because I came to a club with a strong habit of winning titles and playing regularly in the Champions League.

"I have individual goals and team goals; with the family atmosphere and strong fighting spirit within the club, I believe we can achieve great things together.

"I want to continue winning trophies here and make a big contribution to the history of this great club."
