Former Super Eagles striker, Jude Odion Ighalo is to receive N122 million for helping Saudi team, Al Hilal to reached the Club World Cup final for the first team.
Saudi billionaire Prince Al Waleed bin Talal Al Saud has pledged one million Saudi Riyal (£222k) to each Al-Hilal player for reaching the Club World Cup Final and a further one million if they win the tournament.
Al Hilal beat Copa Libertadores Champions, Flamengo in the Semi-Finals to reach the final, and will now face the winner from the Al Ahly of Egypt and Real Madrid match in the final.
Ighalo has been having life smooth and easy since moving to Saudi Arabia even as he earns megabucks weekly.
Meanwhile La Liga giants Real Madrid have congratulated Odion Ighalo and his Al-Hilal’s teammates for their first-ever qualification to the final of the FIFA Club World Cup.
Ighalo featured from the start before being replaced on 57 minutes, as Al-Hilal stunned Flamengo of Brazil 3-2 in the semi-final of this year’s edition in Morocco on Tuesday.
It is the first time a club from Saudi Arabia will qualify for the final of the competition.
And following Al-Hilal’s qualification, Madrid sent a message of congratulations to the team.
