“I would like to officially announce my retirement from professional football today,” he told Sky Sports.

“Firstly, I would like to thank God for the career I have had.

“I would like to thank the entire Nigeria Football Federation and my Nigeria national team-mates for all the memorable years I had playing for the Super Eagles.”

He thanked fans, players and officials of clubs he played at for their support, adding that it is time to move to the next part of his life.

The former Julius Berger man also had stints with Everton, Middlesbrough, Blackburn and Portsmouth, among others.
