EX-SUPER EAGLES STRIKER YAKUBU RETIRES


Former super eagle's Yakubu Aiyegbeni, has announced his retirement from playing international football on Wednesday.
“I would like to officially announce my retirement from professional football today,” Yakubu said
“Firstly, I would like to thank God for the career I have had. I would like to thank the entire Nigerian Football Federation and my Nigerian national team-mates for all the memorable years I had playing for the Super Eagles.
“I would also like to thank all the football clubs I played for. The managers, all club staff, owners, fellow players and my dearest family and friends who immensely supported me throughout my career.
“When I started my career at Julius Berger in Nigeria all those years ago (1997) I could only have dreamt of the success that was to follow years after.
“Also playing in England especially helped me grow as a player and as a person so much that I am now settled here. I feel the time is right for me to now focus on the next chapter in my life.” Yakubu said
Aiyegbeni, 35,  scored 21 goals in his 57 appearances for Nigeria since  debut in 2000. He is currently the third highest ever international goalscorer for the country.
