Manchester United Midfielder Odion Ighalo has been benched for some games now.
However, After his deadline day arrival from the Shabghai Greenland Shenhua and joining Reds, his boyhood idols, on loan from the remainder of the campaign which was later reviewed.
Odion Ighalo’s name and presences seems to be fading away at United by each passing week.
A player who was described by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, as “a man with a great personality and big smile” seems to be walking around these days with a smile and a real opportunity to prove himself to the United faithful’s.
“We got an experienced goal scorer, top scorer in the Africa Cup of Nations last season.
He’s a man with a big smile, a great personality and a big Manchester United fan.
He’s going to savor this, enjoy this and give absolutely everything for us.” Solskjaer spoke to Manchester United TV.
Ighalo’s dream of coming back to the Manchester United first team sheets looks more like a dream after United acquired the services of former Paris Saint German striker, Edinson Cavani, on a one-year deal with an option to extend for a further year.
Comparing Igahlo’s statistics from his deadline day transfer (last season) to this season, he has made only 1 premiership and 2 Europa League appearances this season compared to his 11-league appearance and 5 Europa league matches with 2 goals in the 2019/2020 season.
With the form of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood, and the newly added Edinson Cavani, does Ighalo have a place at United’s starting 11?
Or was it a mistake from the part of Ighalo to stick to Manchester United rather than going back to his parent club?
