Manchester United striking sensation, Odion Ighalo has ruled out becoming Nigeria’s President.
The 30-year-old loanee had retired from international duty in the Super Eagles after netting 16 goals from 35 Super Eagles’ outings and is Nigeria’s seventh-highest scorer. He claimed his exit would help younger players “learn and grow”.
Calls have been made for Ighalo to return to Super Eagles following his blistering career in United.
In one of his recent charity work posts, a fan tipped the ex-Nigeria U20 skipper to become the country’s no. 1 citizen – an idea the striker laughed off, claiming he is satisfied with his role at Old Trafford.
“Abeg o leave me to manage my position as Manchester United striker. I no fit Naija wahala or politics,” he replied in a tweet in pidgin English.
Ighalo is becoming a fan favorite in Old Trafford having scored four goals in three appearances for the club.
