Ighalo: I’ve Now Settled Down Fully In China


Changchun Yatai striker, Odion Jude Ighalo has revealed that the main secret to his recent burst of goals for his club is the fact that he has now settled down better at his base in the Oriental Country, compared to where he was a rookie there last season.

Ighalo, who has netted six goals in his last two outings in the Chinese Super League, said he now feels at home and is a lot more familiar with the CSL, compared to last season.

The former Lyn Oslo of Norway, Udinese of Italy, Granada of Spain and Watford of England striker admitted he loves the rave reviews following his feat, but says he wants to stay fully focused on doing well for both club and country, as the World Cup draws nearer.

“I know the league better now. Last season, I was trying to find my rhythm in the beginning but I was able to pick up as the season unfolded; I now feel much better every time I go on the field.

“I am happy the goals are coming because that is my job as a striker but sometimes one will play well and will still not get a goal. So, in such instance, I just have to keep going and believe the goals will come,” Ighalo said.
