Former Super Eagles forward Odion Ighalo has explained how excited he is on his move to England on six months loan after a long time. he made his way in to the heart of Manchester united fans as he speaks to the media on how he feels.
According to him, “At 11pm in Shanghai, my agent called me to say that United want to do the deal so I woke up that night & started looking for a translator to go to the directors’ room and hit his door and all that. ‘United are coming for me, you have to make this happen’.”
“My agent said, ‘You’re going to get a pay cut to go to United’. I said ‘I don’t care. Make this deal happen. I don’t care how much is the pay cut’. So the director and everybody didn’t know what to say anymore because I had already made up my mind.”
he further assured, “Martial likes to come from the side, even Rashford and all that, do you need someone in the middle that can keep the ball, hold the ball, because I’ve watched so many United games …” 1/2
”So they need a physicality there up front to keep the ball, to give and to make some movement, which I believe, if everything goes well, I can add to the team.” #mufc
“I was excited [when his move was complete. I called my mum and she was happy, crying and all that. This is your dream and all that and I’m happy for you. It was dramatic, I didn’t sleep though, I was very happy that finally we got the deal done.” Ighalo told Man-United media.
