Former Inter Milan and Newcastle striker Obafemi Martins said he can still play for any big team in the world even at the age of 34.
Speaking further, the ex-Super Eagles striker discloses he has no desire to hang up his boots just yet and has set his sights on joining a club soon
Martins was tipped to quit football in 2018 after a hamstring injury ended his time at Shanghai Shenhua.
However, ‘Obagoal’ feels he still has plenty to offer football.
Martins, who won two Coppa Italia titles, one Serie A, one English Football League Cup and was named Caf’s Most Promising Talent of the Year twice, won the 2007 Chinese FA Cup topscorer prize and aims to join a new club soon.
Speaking to a reliable source, Martins said, “After my career-threatening injury in China, many people advised me to quit but I told myself I still have a lot to offer the beautiful game,”
“Football is my life; I eat, drink and sleep football so I don’t see any reason to call time on something that makes me happy
“I’m 34 but I feel like a teenager, and with this sensation, I can still play for any big team across the world. I’m thankful for what I have achieved in football but I thirst for more.
“That desire is still there, the desire to score more goals and win more titles. For my next move, I have got offers from the United States, China and Saudi Arabia but I will only move when I see the right bargain.”
