Former Nigeria international Peter Osaze Odemwingie has retired from football at the age of 37.
Osaze Odemwingie last played for Indonesian side Madura FC in 2017 and announced the decision to retire from football at Uefa Equal Game conference at Wembley on Wednesday.
“It’s an emotional day, so many memories go through your head,” Odemwingie told the audience.
“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.”
“The next chapter is slowly building up to a coaching career, and hopefully I will be coaching in the Premier League one day.”
