Ighalo Has Nothing To Offer Super Eagles Again -Fashanu


Former England international, John Fashanu has admonished Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr to work with the current crop of players in his disposal than to recall Odion Ighalo to the senior national team.

Ighalo retired from the Super Eagles after the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, where he finished as the top scorer of the competition.

Though reports in the media have suggested that Ighalo could be recalled to the Super Eagles, however, Fashanu has kicked against such a move by the German tactician.

In an interview with an online media, Fashanu stated that recalling Ighalo back to the team may be to the disadvantage of the younger players regardless of his experience.

“The only thing Ighalo has to offer to the national team is his experience, it is not his ability because there are players who are far better than him and we know that.

“If Rohr wants to bring him in because he stabilises the squad, it is fine. I remember when I was in my 30s and the manager kept bringing me back, it wasn’t because I was a great player but I gave the team confidence. And that might also be the reason why Rohr wants to bring him back but other than that his time is gone.

“Ighalo is in his 30s and in Nigeria we have fantastic prospects that are fighting to get that spot but not all of them can make the squad.

‘If you keep playing the older players it is at the detriment of the younger players. It is high time we start seeing 17, 18-year-old geniuses in the national team. “Where there is no talent the coach may consider bringing him back but there are so many talents and it would be very wrong to bring him back at this stage.”

In his playing days, he chose to play for England ahead of Nigeria.

The difference between Gernot Rohr and General Buhari is just the color of their skin.


They reason alike... Appointing old and warn out politicians (players) to their team.

Whether Ighalo has nothing to offer or not, the most important thing is for Gernot Rohr to have a reliable squad for the Super Eagles that can compete competitively at the world stage.

Young people should be encouraged to join football, these guys need younger replacement.
I can see potbelly there grin, sports is for young people in their teens and at most 20's.
But in Nigeria, even my father's age mate can still be representing the country in sports
