Osaze Odemwingie announces retirement from football

Former Super Eagles striker Peter Odemwingie has announced his retirement from football at the UEFA’s Equal Game conference at Wembley on Wednesday.

On his retirement, Odemwingie said: “It’s an emotional day, so many memories go through your head.


 

“I didn’t know how to do it or where to do it, but I think this is the right place to do it.

 

“Wembley is a place with a lot of history in football.”

 

Odemwingie, whose last professional appearances came for Indonesian side Madura United in 2017, said he intends to embark on a coaching career.

 

Odemwingie was capped for Nigeria more than 60 times, scoring at the 2014 World Cup, and scored 36 goals in 129 Premier League appearances between 2010 and 2016.
