Don’t Let Ighalo Go’ – Hargreaves Tells Man Utd

Igbaho

Former Manchester United star, Owen Hargreaves has advised the club against letting go of on-loan forward, Odion Ighalo.

Since joining Old Trafford in January, the 30-year-old has impressed, scoring four goals in eight appearances.

Hargreaves told TalkSPORT that Ighalo, who arrived from Shanghai Shenhua in China on deadline day, would continue to deliver the goods in a Red Devils shirt if given a permanent deal.

“He’s a big United fan isn’t he and he’s done great, he’s done really good, better probably than he could have hoped and Man United could have hoped and he’s been a good addition to the team.

“I think all the boys are really good athletes and quick and want to run in behind and get the ball into feet but he looks comfortable with his back to the goal.

“I love Marcus and Martial, love their game, but they’re quite different in the sense that they want the ball into feet and they want to run in behind, whereas he’s comfortable being a target man with people behind him and then getting the ball and people can run off him.

“It’s not always about getting the best name, it’s about getting the guy that you don’t have that you need.

“He was somebody that whoever signed him hats off to you, because he’s given them something different,” Hargreaves, who won the 2008 Champions League with United, said.
