Ighalo explains goal celebration against Norwich

07 December 2015, 14:21

London - Watford striker Jude Odion Ighalo has explained why he pulled off his jersey after scoring the winner in their 2-0 win over Norwich in the English Premier League over the weekend.

The 26-year old scored his ninth league goal of the season and Watford’s second in stoppage time at Vicarage Road on Saturday, and pulled his jersey in celebration, with his trademark knees to the ground and hands raised above his head as if gesturing to the heavens.

Speaking after the game, Ighalo reckoned he was frustrated during the game, having missed several scoring chances and also having had one of his goals disallowed.

“I was a bit angry because I had missed a lot of chances and I should have scored more than one goal in that game and I also had one disallowed by the referee, so I took off my shirt when I scored the goal (towards the end),” Ighalo said.

The Nigerian striker however went on to express his satisfaction with his team’s display and the win they secured.

“I am very happy with the team’s performance and I am very happy we played well and we won,” he added.

Ighalo has now scored 25 goals in 2015, making him the most prolific scorer in English football for the calendar year.
