Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed Odion Ighalo will feature for his side when they square off against Watford in Saturday’s FA Cup tie.
Solskjaer in a pre-match conference said, “Odion, it’s special for him against Watford. He will be involved; he’s in the squad”
“He’s been training really well. I was just saying before, I don’t know how many goals he scored, but he was the top scorer by a mile in the round-robin we just had in training” Solskjaer said
“So he’s not lost any of his sharpness or his quality. It’s been difficult for him to be out of the squad as many times of course because he did really well up to the summer. he said.
Recall that the Nigerian centre-forward Ighalo joined the Red Devils during the January 2020 transfer deadline day from Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua.
Undoubtedly, his eye-catching performances and fine displays which earned five goals last season, elongate his loan contract with Manchester United till January 2021
