Peter Odemwingie Retires From Football


Peter Osaze Odemwingie is officially a Nigerian former professional footballer who played as a forward and striker.

Odemwingie grew up in Uzbekistan and Russia and began his career with Bendel Insurance in the Nigeria Premier League.

The 37-year old striker played for the likes of Lille, Lokomotiv Moscow, West Bromwich Albion and Stoke City, and represented the Super Eagles at two World Cups.

Peter, who last played for Indonesian side Madura FC in 2017, announced the decision to hang up his boots at the Uefa Equal Game conference at Wembley on Wednesday.

“It’s an emotional day, so many memories go through your head,” He said.

“I didn’t know how to do it or where to do it, but I think this is the right place to do it. Wembley is a place with a lot of history in football.”

Talking a little about what’s next for him, he said “The next chapter is slowly building up to a coaching career, and hopefully I will be coaching in the Premier League one day.”

Can’t wait to see that.

Well done Peter! You will be missed.
