    Honestly,returning to the bundesliga is a no-brainer.England is not your home like you rightly said and as well the football.So you are better of moving back to a familiar terrain,a league which you know inside out,a football philosophy you were raised to adopt and where you are much appreciated.
    When you do the right thing at the right time you get maximum results.
    Meanwhile,Super eagles starting place is still there for the taking and the decision you make today will determine how serious you are about claiming back what was yours.
