Coronavirus: I Miss Football - Ighalo


Manchester United striker, Odion Jude Ighalo has said that he misses football amid the extensive suspension of sporting activities due to the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

Allnews reports that the English Premier League (EPL) and Football League's current season has been postponed until at least April 30 due to the coronavirus crisis, following a video conference meeting on Thursday.

The Football Association, Premier League, EFL and women's professional game bodies, along with players and managers associations, agreed to extend the formal end-date for the 2019/2020 season "indefinitely" in a bid to try to complete the campaign, they said in a joint statement.




The on-loan Shanghai Greenland Shenhua of China striker has scored in all three of his starts in all competitions for Manchester United, with the erstwhile Super Eagles of Nigeria frontman netting four goals in total.

He has been nominated for Manchester United's Player of the Month award for March and faces competition from fellow January signing Bruno Fernandes, captain Harry Maguire, and midfielder Fred as he eyes his maiden accolade at Old Trafford.
