“It was not an easy decision. I didn’t think my international career would come to a sudden end, but that is life.
Sometimes it’s better to remove yourself from an environment that doesn’t suit you mentally and physically, this is what I have done.
I also felt it was important that people hear directly from me to avoid a funny twist to the story.
I wish to thank the coaches who gave me a chance, fellow players and in particular big thanks to all my fans for their unconditional support.”
Emenike announced his retirement on Instagram, sending shock waves across the Nigerian Football Federation.
