Nigerian midfielder, Etim Esin has called on Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr to convince Odion Ighalo to rescind his decision on retirement from the national team.

Ighalo, who played a cameo role in Man United’s 3-1 loss to Chelsea in Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final at Wembley, has rediscovered his form since joining the Red Devils from Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua in January.

In an interview with Punch, Esin is of the opinion that Ighalo’s return to the Super Eagles would benefit Samuel Chukwueze, Victor Osimhen, and a few others.

“I think this is a job for the coach (Gernot Rohr), he’s the one in charge, and he should try and convince Ighalo to rescind his decision on retirement from the national team,” Esin said.

“Ighalo’s return to the Eagles will help to boost the confidence level of younger strikers in the team, and this will help us going forward.

“Samuel Chukwueze, Victor Osimhen, and others would benefit from his experience if the coach brings him back.

“We should learn to tap from the resources we have in our hands. Ighalo is one of the best strikers we have today, Rohr should convince him to return.”
