Obafemi Martins, 35, rejoins Chinese club, Shanghai

 

Veteran Nigerian striker, Obafemi Martins, has rejoined Shanghai Shenhua, the Chinese FA Cup winners said on Wednesday, more than two years since his last competitive match.

 

The 35-year-old former Inter Milan and Newcastle United forward was without a club last year as he battled a hamstring injury.

 

His last game was in April 2018 for Chinese Super League side Shenhua, for whom he scored 32 goals in 59 matches during his previous spell.

 

Shenhua did not say how long Martins’ new contract is for but he helps replace fellow Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo, who is on loan at Manchester United.
