Former Super Eagles Victor Anichebe wants Return to the Pitch
Nigeria and former Everton forward Victor Anichebe says he is open to another spell in English football, Anichebe has not played competitive football in over two years since a brief spell with Chinese side Beijing Enterprise. The 32-year-old failed to secure a contract following a trial at League One outfit Doncaster Rovers last year.
Victor Anichebe said: “I feel hungry to play but only if the right opportunity comes. I am working on a lot of other things right now but if the right opportunity comes then I would definitely play.” “Last year I trained with my friend Darren Moore at Doncaster. It was really good to be in and around [the team atmosphere].
“I have had a few options to go abroad but I feel I want to play in England. I feel like I have unfinished business in England. I would prefer to stay in England for another two years.” “Right now is the fittest I have ever been. We will see if a good opportunity comes and I’ll assess if I actually want to take it and we’ll go from there.”
No club has however approached the Nigerian but he feels he can still play, he still stands a chance to play in either of the English teams, Mikel Obi was also without a team but he was signed by Stoke City recently and so the former West Brome player still stand a chance to come back into the game.
