The Al-Shabab striker’s return to the national team has been criticised, but the Napoli number nine insists it benefits the squad 

Napoli striker Victor Osimhen has revealed that he has no problem with the return of Odion Ighalo to the Super Eagles squad. 

Ighalo retired from international football in 2019, but more than two years after his retirement, he is back in the national team after coach Gernot Rohr invited him for Nigeria’s clash against Liberia and Cape Verde

Osimhen took over from Ighalo when he retired after the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations and has been more than a perfect replacement for the former Manchester United striker. 

But with the Al-Shabab striker’s return, critics believe Osimhen may not be happy with the decision, and he could see it as a lack of trust.

However, the former Lille striker has now debunked those rumours, saying it is a good development for the Super Eagles.

“It’s good, it is good for the team, and of course, the coaches and the Federation knows what’s best for the team,” Osimhen told the Super Eagles media team.
