President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick has refused to rule out the possible return of Retired Super Eagles player, Odion Ighalo.

Odion Ighalo called it a quit with the National team after helping the Nation to clinch a bronze Medal at the 2019 AFCON Tournament with his goals which also earned him the top scorer's Award. 

President Amaju Pinnick in an interview with Plus TV Africa revealed that he has been in touch with the Manchester United Player who is on-loan from Shanghai Shenhua and believes he still has his heart with the national team and there could always be a room for return to the team.

"He grew up in Ajegunle, you know the mentality about Ajegunle and Nigeria, he loves the country so much, so I believe if there is need for him to play for Nigeria, he will come. 

"I am in touch with him, we speak every other week. He is quite respectful, quite disciplined and quite prayerful. 

"The most important thing is that he loves the country so it's an advantage for us but he also wants to give the younger players the opportunity to play like Osimhen, look at Iheanacho coming back strong, then Dessers."

 "If there is need for him to come I believe he would definitely come but we don't want to put him under pressure, we want him to concentrate.

"Manchester United is not a bed of roses, he needs total concentration to be in that club so we want to give him that."
