Red-hot Super Eagles and Changchun Yatai forward Odion Ighalo has indicated his intention to stage a return back to European Football.
Speaking in an interview with Supersport, Ighalo said it is his dr4eam to someday return to Europe, where he has played in Italy, Spain, and England before more to Asia.
my dream is to go back to Europe and play again before I end my career.
”We will see after the Nations Cup and see how it goes, now I am enjoying my time in China but if the opportunity comes in Europe, I will grab it with my two hands because everybody knows Europe is the best.
”I am looking forward to that opportunity again, when it comes I am going to take it.”
Finally, the Super Eagles number nine has branded the Chinese Super League a competitive league due to the influx of foreign players and expatriate coaches.
”The league is growing everyday, it is very much difficult because a lot of foreign players are coming to China, a lot of foreign coaches are there.
”It is more tactical now, it is more difficult. You know in a team you only have three foreign players that can play in a team, so you have to work extra hard for you to score goals, to do more.
”In China now, I am working more harder than when I was in England because I am the captain of the team.
”I run a lot, I have to do twice as I do in England for me to get a goal, so it’s more difficult for me and the work rate is higher than when I was in England,” Ighalo concluded.
