Yakubu Aiyegbeni Retires from Football at 35

Former Nigerian International, Yakubu Aiyegbeni has hanged his boots at age 35 after a successful career.

Yakubu played in the English topflight from January 2003 and June 2012, scoring 114 times in 293 league appearances where he muscled down defenses for Portsmouth, Middlesbrough, Everton, Leicester and Blackburn before joining Chinese club Guangzhou.

Although he returned for short spells at Reading in 2015, then Coventry City recently; he never really hit the height he so well cruised during his younger days.

Yabuku bagged 21 goals in 57 games for Nigeria and has the best scoring record than any other Nigerian in the premier league with 96 Premier League goals, just 5 short of Didier Drogba who is the African with the highest goals.
