Super Eagles player, Odion Ighalo has revealed how his girlfriend left him because he was poor!
The handsome dude, who currently plays as a striker for Chinese club Changchun Yatai F.C, reflected on how he started his journey to stardom from the slums of Ajegunle at Maracana Stadium to being an international footballer.
According to the father of three, as a struggling young man, he had nothing to offer anyone including a girlfriend.
He wrote on Instagram:
From Ajegunle to the world, I serve a living God; this is me 11 years ago. Those earrings are not earrings; I could not even afford to buy earrings that is tape, plaster. I am a testimony, I knew with God everything is possible, I was just holding on to my God, my high school girlfriend left me then because I had nothing to offer her. But I had God and I had a dream. Never give up on your Dream, the same God that elevated me shall elevate you, hold on to him and trust his timing. I am a testimony, you are a testimony, put God first and it’s all done Amen.#Mondaymotivation#” (sic)
Also sharing family photographs of his wife and kids, Ighalo said of his wife, “Crushing on this girl since 1860.” (sic)
The June-born footballer who recently turned 28 years ‘who couldn’t afford to buy earrings’ is currently the highest paid Nigerian footballer at the moment with 190,000 alerts beeping on his phone on a weekly basis, Ighalo is a ‘Made Man from Maracana.’
