Nigerian striker Emmanuel Emenike releases statement that he is retiring from the national team super eagles of Nigeria

Emmanuel Emenike retires.
It looks like this is the season of retirement in the Nigeria national team,the Super Eagles.First it was keeper Vincent Enyeama who retired after a disagreement with coach Sunday Oliseh.Now it's
striker Emmanuel Emenike who was the star player when Nigeria won the African nations cup in 2013,ending up as the top scorer of the competition.But it seems Emenike's retirement was not done with a clean and willing heart.According to his retirement statement,the Nigeria Super Eagles camp was not a family camp.Emenike is definitely not happy about something.
Here is the strikers retirement statement below as announced on social media instagram..(another trend?)

“No more Eagles career! “After 5 great years, I am happy to announce
that I have put full-stop to my National team career for the sake of
national peace. Its a pleasure for me to have .ed for this great
country. I never regretted it and I think its the best time to end it.
Millions thanks to all the fans who have been very supportive during the
good and bad times. I am very proud of my performance, I am proud of my
team mates and I am very proud of the nation called ‘Nigeria’. My AFCON
gold medal is a sign of great achievement, My AFCON topscorer award
speaks a lot about my commitment and dedication to the team. Super
Eagles is a camp not a family house, and it shouldn’t be a threat zone
for any individual. I have done according to our national anthem. “All
my dreams came true in the national team, I dreamt to win Nations Cup
for Nigeria after 20-years, I dreamt to .ed at the World Cup as well
as to make a name for myself… In the space of five years, I got them.
I’m a winner! “For every disappointing fans, maybe due to my inability
to re-establish my goal scoring instinct for Super Eagles, I will like
to say I’m sorry but the ones I had scored counted well for the team. As
long as Nigeria remains, you and I will always remember the name
‘Emenike’. “Finally, I am happy to make a bow and continue supporting
the team every time.

Up Eagles, God Bless Nigeria!
Thanks for the memories Emenike,you really were on fire in 2013,and i don't think we could have won the nations cup without you.Shame you had to retire this way after only just 5 years.I and Nigerian fans wish you well in your career.
