    Ighalo has done very well at Man United. The coach did not give him adequate opportunities, but he still used the limited game time he was given and made his mark, scoring some nice goals in the process.
    The signing of Cavani obviously speaks to the coach’s perception of Ighalo’s value to the club. Odion should start exploring other options with the January window approaching. The boyhood dream has been realized. Time for sleeping and dreaming is over. If the coach continues to refuse to give Ighalo his due game time, then it’s time to call it quits. Nonsense!
