Nigerian International player currently with Machester United club side has opened up on how he feels following the death of his elder sister Mary Atole who died in Canada late last year

Speaking with the Sun, the former Watford striker says he and his family are still in shock.

“I feel very emotional because it has not really struck me that my sister is gone forever and I am never going to see her again,’ 

“My twin sister, Akhere, will call me, crying, saying she misses her and, sometimes when I am alone, I cry too.

“It is a very painful loss but I am trying to be strong as a man.”

On how he has decided to honour his late sister, the striker says: “Every goal I score from now until I finish my career will be dedicated to God and to her,” Ighalo continued.

“I have written her name on my special white T-shirt and put her name on my boots. I want to show the world she is always with me.”
