Emmanuel Olisadebe Announces Retirement Former Poland striker Emmanuel Olisadebe has announced his retirement from football. The native of Nigeria last played for Veria in the Greece Super League.

'' It was too frustrating. I did not have a place in the starting eleven. So I said goodbye to the pitch, but not with the ball. I returned to Nigeria and am preparing for the role of coach. I recently had an interview with an exam coaching school in Lagos. Waiting for the results (laughs). If the answer is positive, I will soon start the one-year course as instructor,'' Olisadebe told Polish website Super Expressem.

When questioned on if he would love to handle any of the Polish teams, Olisadebe said: ''
Who knows, maybe it will happen. Except that it is not easy to do coaching career in Europe. That's why I decided to go back to the roots, to Nigeria and I start. However, Poland is one of my options for the future. I'm also thinking of entering the world of business. Nigeria is a country of immense possibilities in this regard. We have 110 million people, but virtually no produce. Only consumption! Areas in which to work to change that, so it is a lot.''

Born 34 years ago in Warri, Olisadebe played for  clubs in Nigeria, Poland, Greece, England , Cyprus and China.

In 25 matches for the Poland National Team, the former Jasper United striker scored 11 goals.
