Now married to a lovely wife with three kids, Super Eagles striker Odion Ighalo had his own fair share of heartbreaks while struggling in the earlier part of his now blossoming club football career.

In an emotional Facebook post labeled Monday motivation, Ighalo revealed that his High School lover dumped him because he supposedly had nothing to offer her.

"I knew with God everything is possible, I was just holding on to my God, my high school girlfriend left me then because I had nothing to offer her." Ighalo wrote in Monday's post which captured his tough journey to the top.

Victorious in every sense of it now, Ighalo who has now navigated his way past poverty into stupendous wealth  admonished his fans to stay strong and continually believe in their dream.

“Never give up on your Dream, the same God that elevated me shall elevate you , hold on to him and trust his timing. I am a testimony, you are a testimony, put God first and it's all done Amen”
