Obafemi Martins was at the San Siro for the Champions League clash between Inter Milan and Barcelona.

Nigerian striker Obafemi Martins returned to his former club Inter Milan for their 1-1 draw against Barcelona in a Champions League clash played on Tuesday, November 6.

The 34-year-old Martins suffered the injury which has kept him out for seven months in an Asian Champions League game played between Shanghai Shenhua and Kashima Antlers club played on Wednesday, April 4.

The Nigerian played for Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan from 2001 – 2006 before leaving for English Premier League side Newcastle United.


Martins who is still playing professional football in the Chinese Super League (CSL) under the books of Shanghai Shenhua was reunited with some of his old teammates at the stadium.

He took to his official Instagram account to post pictures of his former colleagues such as Julio Caesar who recently retired, Former World Player of the Year Luis Figo and his captain Javier Zanetti who now has an administrative role at the club.


The pictures and video came with a caption, "Feels good to be back home…forza inter."

Martins watched as Barcelona took the lead through Brazilian forward Malcom before captain Mauro Icardi pulled one back for Inter Milan.


The nimble forward is among Nigeria's all time highest goal scorers and is regarded as one of the fastest players to have ever played for Nigeria.

According to several reports Martins contract at Shanghai Shenhua will soon be up for renegotiation and may continue his future adventure elsewhere when he recovers fully from the injury he sustained.
