Watford striker Odion Ighalo has stated that he remains unfazed by his current goal drought for club and country.
Ighalo met with Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr recently, along with Isaac Success, who missed the Eagles’ World Cup qualifier against Zambia due to injury.
Nigeria star Ighalo, who last scored for the Hornets in their 4-2 win over West Ham in an English Premier League game at the London Stadium in September, is hoping to finish the season on a high despite his current poor form in front of goal.
The former Granada forward who has scored twice in nine appearances in all competitions so far this season said that he continues to work hard to rekindle his old scoring form.
“I’m calm about it and I am confident that I will start scoring again soon,” Ighalo said.
“That the goals are not coming now doesn’t mean I won’t score again. It’s better to start slowly and finish on a high. I just want everybody to be patient with me on this.”
He also revealed that his compatriot Isaac Success will be a big hit once he regains his full fitness.
Success who has scored once in six appearances has been plagued with a muscular injury which saw him travel to Spain for treatment.
The 20-year-old has since arrived back at Vicarage Road but it remains to be seen if he will feature this weekend when Watford host Hull City.
“He (Success) is a great player but injury has slowed his start to the EPL,” Ighalo.
“I’m confident he will be a big hit here and I will be supporting him to succeed here.”
Ighalo later tweeted his excitement at meeting with Rohr, while the striker posted a picture of himself, Rohr and Success.
