“I waited 17 years before winning my first league title, it doesn’t matter how long it takes, if you keep working hard and never give up, you will get it right one day. God is the greatest,” he wrote.

Ighalo, who started his professional career with defunct Julius Berger FC, Lagos, has played club football in six countries across Europe and Asia without winning a league title.

Although he has been on the top scorers’ list at different clubs he had played, the former Watford star had never been the highest goal scorer in any league.

In 2019, however, Ighalo was the highest goalscorer at the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, where the Super Eagles of Nigeria earned bronze under former gaffer, Gernot Rohr.
