‘I Was Offered Osimhen’s Shirt’ – Ighalo

Returnee Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo has revealed that he was offered the number nine shirt of Victor Osimhen when he was considering a return to the team.

It should be recalled that Ighalo returned to the Super Eagles against Cape Verde last month.

Ighalo told ESPN that he was offered the number nine shirt currently being occupied by Victor Osimhen.

“A top NFF official told me I could have the number nine jersey back, and I told him no.

“I had left it. Osimhen is using it now and coming back, I’m going to play with any jersey number.”

“I told them to give me any jersey available. I can play with my bare skin for Nigeria, I’m a patriotic Nigerian. If it means me playing without a shirt in this team, I’m going to play. It’s not the shirt that score the goals.”

Victor Osimhen has been ruled out of the 2022 African Cup of Nations in January, Ighalo is expected to take his place in the team.
