Yakubu happy to be back

Yakubu Aiyegbeni says he is happy to be back to wearing the colours of the Nigerian national team after he was shut out for about 18 months.

Yakubu who is part of the Eagles team in Rwanda for a crucial Africa Cup of Nations qualifier says he always wanted to play.

“It’s always special playing for your country. You always want to play but I never had the chance.

“It was almost two years. It’s my country and I never had the chance but I’m happy to be here now to help the team and hopefully we see how it goes,” Yakubu said.

The Blackburn forward said he held no grudges against those that shut him out or criticised him

“It’s normal to get criticised whether you play for your club or country and that’s what happened in my case.

“I don’t feel bad. It just gave me more determination to do more and play better and I believe I’m better for it now.”
