Previous Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo, has conceded that he left Premier League side, Watford to join Chinese side, Changchun Yatai in 2017 in view of ‘cash’.
Ighalo scored 33 objectives in 82 counterparts for Watford during his spell at the English club.
“There’s part of reasons I went there [China]. I wasn’t playing much in Watford and I would not like to continue sitting on the seat,” Ighalo told the Watford Observer.
“Watford fans don’t have any acquaintance with it however I had an idea from Crystal Palace on the table and West Bromwich yet the club was searching for large cash and that is the reason I acknowledged Changchun Yatai at the time. In this way, rather than me plunking down there and not playing I needed to move.
“At the point when the open door sought me I acknowledged it since China could pay what Watford needed. In any case, this is past tense at this point. I am upbeat and Watford are cheerful in light of the fact that they raked in tons of cash with me. Furthermore, they are as yet my group in the Premier League.
“I don’t think about different players. Possibly they go there for various aspirations. Me? Indeed, I went there for the cash I am straightforward however I don’t have the foggiest idea why different players go there for.”
He included: “The association is truly developing, they have a ton of remote mentors and players who improve the group.
“Everything I can say is that the Chinese Super League is improving each day and I am cheerful about my decision. Second thoughts? No everything is working out positively, I am cheerful there and buckling down.”
