Nigeria’s Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo has said that he has lived a full life as a footballer even if he is not achieving anything as of now.
Ighalo shared this in an interview with ESPN, where he revealed that he has achieved his lifelong dream and that is to play for the English soccer club, Manchester United.
“It was a good one and a tough one, before I came to United I never thought I would play”.
“I’m a Reds fan.
“If you ask anybody where I grew up, we fight because of Manchester United. We quarrel and argue. So when my team didn’t do well they would start to insult and argue with me and I cried. I can tell you I’m the happiest man on earth for my dream to come true, I fulfilled my dream.
“I remember the night my agent called me to tell me Manchester United wanted me, it was 10 or 11pm. Shanghai time. I was under my bed n***d, I didn’t sleep until daybreak.
“I don’t care about a pay cut, I just want go to Manchester United because this is my dream. I was under my bed shivering and walking around my room and I did not sleep until 6am.
“I’m fulfilled as a football player, if I don’t achieve anything from now when I finish my career I am fulfilled.”
