Former Nigeria international Victor Anichebe is hoping to play football again ahead of the 2020/21 season after resumption of football which was paused in February due to Coronavirus outbreak. 

The 32-year-old striker, who played for English sides Everton, West Bromwich Albion and Sunderland, has been a free agent since he left Chinese club Beijing Enterprises.

Anichebe scored 26 goals and registered 13 assists in 204 English Premier League appearances.

The bulky marksman feels that he has ‘unfinished business’ in England where he spent 11 years.

" I feel hungry to play but only if the right opportunity comes,” Anichebe told Sky Sports. I am working on a lot of other things right now but if the right opportunity comes then I would definitely play.

" Last year I trained with my friend Darren Moore at Doncaster. It was really good to be in and around [the team atmosphere].”

Anichebe played 11 international matches for Nigeria and hit the back of the net once in the process.

" It took me about a week to get the fitness but I felt good. I am looking forward, if the right opportunity comes, to getting back into it,” he added.

" I have had a few options to go abroad but I feel I want to play in England. I feel like I have unfinished business in England. I would prefer to stay in England for another two years. Right now is the fittest I have ever been,” he said.

Anichebe has experienced incidents of racist abuse while playing both in England and abroad, attended a Black Lives Matter march in Liverpool and is encouraged by the common desire to improve equality, he will also assess any good opportunity that comes if he can actually take it and we'll go from there.”
