He finished top scorer in the qualifiers for 2019 AFCON and also won the golden boot as the top scorer in the AFCON finals.
Rohr while speaking to ElegbeteTV explained the reason Al Shabab FC of Saudi Arabia striker is needed in the team.
” if you look at all the players we have presently they are all young and we needed a little bit of experience in the team.
“If he comes back, players like Osimhen and Iheanacho will like his presence to progress because Ighalo is a core professional and also a great goal scorer,” he said.
Since he left Super Eagles, Ighalo has played for English premier league side Manchester United and is presently with Al Shabab FC of Saudi Arabia.
