Odion Ighalo has uncovered that his preferred second so far as a Manchester United player was scoring his lady goal for the club in their 5-0 defeat of Club Brugge in an Europa League tie back in February 2020.
The goal came 27 days after United affirmed his advance move from Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua and on his full introduction in the wake of playing three past games off the seat.
Following his negative mark against the Belgian group, Ighalo turned into the principal Nigerian-conceived player to score for Manchester United.
“My preferred second is the point at which I scored my objective for Manchester United, I was the principal Nigerian to play for Manchester United, the primary Nigerian to score for Manchester United,” Ighalo said to BBC’s Mimi Fawaz.
“I was unable to rest in the night, awakening checking my telephone, messages from everywhere the world from loved ones, it implies a great deal to me.”
Ighalo made his season debut on Saturday as United shockingly lost 3-1 to Crystal Palace at Old Trafford, entering the 81st moment to supplant Timothy Fosu-Mensah in a strategic replacement by administrator Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
