Although the development has led to reports that the China-based star may have hung his boots for the West Africans, he has expressed his desire to continue playing with the side.

“I cannot retire, because l am not tired,” he said.

“I think if you have been doing something for a very long time, you will definitely ask for a little break.”

According to him, “That’s what I have been on, I have been on break. I am not tired yet. The day I will retire, I will let everyone know before I make the statement.”
