Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has again expressed how happy he is concerning the club extending Odion Ighalo’s loan deal.
Recall that Ighalo’s loan deal was a six-month agreement between his Chinese club, Shanghai Shenhua and Manchester United which was set to expire at the end of May.
Shanghai Shenhua wanted the Nigerian striker back, but eventually had an agreement with United for him to stay until January 2021.
Ighalo netted his first goal since his contract extension in Man United’s 2-1 victory over Norwich City in the FA Cup – his fifth goal in four starts.
“Keeping Ighalo was important to me and we worked hard to do it.
“He’s a goalscorer, a poacher, strong, we can play the ball into him like we did on the winning goal, where he showed and Paul found him.
“He’s performing well but it also gives me the chance to rotate with Marcus, Anthony and Mason, so we’re fresh for every game,” Solskjaer said according to the UK Mirror.
