Rohr: There is still space for Ighalo with the Super Eagles

Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr has insisted that Odion Ighalo's place in the squad is still intact whether he decides to change clubs before the close of the Chinese transfer window on February 28. 

However, according to reports, Ighalo is said to have made up his mind to remain in China from the start as the European teams who had expressed their interest in him couldn't meet his wage demands. 
 
'We will see with Ighalo, I hope that he will change the club now to play, not to stay in the second division in China,'' said Gernot Rohr. 

''If he has to stay in the second division in China and he's playing well, why not?"

''He's doing so well for the Super Eagles, he scored so many goals and has confidence.

''We still need him but also in good fitness. He had a little injury on the knee, I hope he will be fit again and play in his club.''
 
Ighalo joined Changchun Yatai F.C on a 4+1 year deal in January 2017 and takes home approximately one million euros every month at the demoted club.
