Ighalo Wants Martial Partnership At Man United

Ighalo Wants Martial Partnership At Man United

Odion Ighalo said it is down to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to decide whether to partner him with Anthony Martial up front for Manchester United.

Ighalo made his second appearance for United as a second-half substitute against Club Brugge on Thursday night, replacing goalscorer Martial in the 67th minute.

The Nigerian also replaced Martial during United’s win at Stamford Bridge on Monday and was asked after the 1-1 draw with Brugge about the possibility of the pair playing alongside each other.

“That is the decision of the coach,” Ighalo said. “My job is just to work hard every day in training and, when called upon to help the team, I do so.”

Ighalo could make his first Premier League appearance for United against former club Watford on Sunday and he believes the time he spent at Vicarage Road will benefit him during his loan spell at Old Trafford.

“I have played in Premier League before, I know what is required,” Ighalo said. “I know you have to be very strong and physical, get to hold some balls up for your team to push forwards, so I am working towards that. I am getting better and better. We have good players there.

“Unfortunately, [Marcus] Rashford is injured, he is a good striker, sometimes he played from the side, so we will have to cope with that. I am happy whenever I am called upon to do anything, I am ready to go.”

    It would really be very wide of the NFF to snap up Lookman now that he’s off form and cap-tie him to the SE.

      Who says Lukeman is off form? Sometimes we should try understand a scenario before drawing up conclusion. Lukeman is only not getting game time because he came on to team already doing fantastically well n combined with language struggle, it’s always going to difficult for some managers, hell bent on making a name for themselves to change their already Winning team. Lukeman is a fantastic footballer, still very young and will surely get his chance. Nigeria will make a very big mistake not to cap sure prodigiously talented player. Only people without eye for pure talent will do that.
