It will be great privilege – Ighalo gives conditions to return to Nigeria Premier League

Odion Ighalo says he would be interested to play in the Nigeria Premier League again.

Ighalo is a free agent after leaving Saudi Arabia’s Professional League club, Al Hilal, last month.

The 34-year-old played for local clubs Prime FC and Julius Berger before starting his professional career in Europe in 2007.

“I said if security is guaranteed, good coverage is assured and better officiating. Of course, [I will play],” the forward told Elegbete TV.

“I have played in the league before, and it will be a great privilege for me to play again for another six months or one year before I end my career.”

It would be recalled that Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa featured briefly for Kano Pillars in 2021 after severing ties with Saudi club, Al Nassr.
