Manchester United’s Champions League Qualification Excites Ighalo

Odion Ighalo has expressed his excitement after Manchester United secured their place in next season’s UEFA Champions League, Completesports.com reports.

United confirmed their place in Europe’s elite club competition after they beat top four rivals Leicester City 2-0 at King Power stadium, in Sunday’s final fixture of the season.

Second half goals from Bruno Fernandes and Jesse Lingard saw United finish the season in third position.

Fernandes broke the deadlock in the 71st minute from the penalty spot before Lingard sealed the win in the 98th minute.

Ighalo, who did not get on the score sheet in the course of the Premier League, was introduced in the 90th minute of the game.

And reacting to United’s qualification for the Champions League, Ighalo wrote on his verified Twitter handle: “So proud of this team.”

United are not done for the season as they are in the knockout stage of this season’s Europa League.

    … You are not respected in Manchested United, at your age just don’t accept bench-warming roles to inferior players who have not won anything both on international level or club level… Jude Ighalo… Please leave Man United, you are better than a super-sub or bit-part player!

    I support Ighalo to move on.He finished top scorer in the Afcon,in my opinion he’s a top player who has found super form later on in his career and shouldn’t waste the few years he has left sitting comfortably on the Manchester united bench.

    Ighalo you can do better.Thank goodness you have achieved your childhood dream of playing for a team you supported while growing up,now is the time to play for a team where you are the go-to man!you are a goalscorer for goodness sake!and has proved that in all the games you started.

    I wouldn’t be bothered with the debate of who bests between Ighalo and his compatriots at Manchester united.In due respect they are top class professionals.Ighalo came to Manchester united as a cover player for the forwards.So he’s never going to start games,the need for him to move on to a place where he’s not mandated by contract to sit on the bench.

    Far from it.Ighalo you are African best scorer and should be a top player with the likes of Aubemeyang,Salah and Mane.Your mindset is very important to how you are rated.If you have the little mind or contentment of just wearing the united colour then you cant go beyond where you are at the moment because that is the limit you have set for yourself.

    If it was up to me, I would rotate the forwards, so that Rashford, Martial, Greenwood, and Ighalo are all used optimally. At the moment, with so many games being played in such a short time, starting a set of players in every game is not ideal. Martial for instance is in the form of his life. Yet, starting him so often will only be counter productive, as the guy will eventually succumb to exhaustion or even injury. In my opinion, Martial and Ighalo should be rotated in the center forward position. If Martial starts today, Ighalo should be ready to start tomorrow, all things being equal. Just makes sense.
    Currently, Ole’s preferred front three is:
    Rashford, Martial, Greenwood
    This has been good, however it can be mixed up as follows:
    Rashford, Ighalo, Greenwood
    Martial, Ighalo, Rashford
    These different combinations will help to optimize player use.
    If they don’t believe in Ighalo, then they should let him go. This bit part role he is playing does not benefit either the player or the club.

      Absolutely @Pompei.Couldn’t have said it any better!

       
    • Thumps Pompei, u took the words from my mouth. Ole is too predictable with his squad selection, unlike Lampard who rotates his squad. Ighalo need to sit up, you can’t just be a bit part player at ur prime. But it seems he is contented of wearing the red jersey only.
