Former Nigerian international Yakubu Aiyegbeni has on Tuesday retired from professional football in a career spanning 20 years.

The 35-year-old striker played 250 games in the Premier League, scoring 96 goals.

Aiyegbeni was released in April by League Two side Coventry City, where he made three appearances.
“I would like to officially announce my retirement from professional football today,” he told Sky Sports.

“Firstly, I would like to thank God for the career I have had.

“I would like to thank the entire Nigeria Football Federation and my Nigeria national team-mates for all the memorable years I had playing for the Super Eagles.”

He thanked fans, players and officials of clubs he played at for their support, adding that it is time to move to the next part of his life.

The former Julius Berger man also had stints with Everton, Middlesbrough, Blackburn and Portsmouth, among others.
