Why Odion Ighalo Will have A Brilliant Effect On Man United's Dressing Room - Neville

Why Odion Ighalo Will have A Brilliant Effect On Man United'


Former Manchester United captain, Gary Neville, has insinuated that ex-Super Eagles of Nigeria striker, Odion Jude Ighalo "is going to have a brilliant effect in the dressing room" at Old Trafford because his heart is 100% at the English Premier League (EPL) club.

Allnews reports that the Nigerian striker - a lifelong supporter of the British giants - was introduced late on in the second half of the Manchester derby on Sunday, which his club won two-nil. Fans were impressed by Ighalo’s contribution despite his cameo.

“A player with desperation and work ethic with less talent will do better at any club than a player that’s got more talent than we’ve had at Manchester United,” Neville said on Sky Sports.

“Think of Lukaku being here and Sanchez being here and players like that over the last few years who’ve not wanted to be here.

“They’ve done okay for the club, Lukaku in particular, but if they don’t want to be here they’re going to have a damaging effect in that dressing room and he [Ighalo] is going to have a brilliant effect in the dressing room.”

Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez are now with Inter Milan in Italy - although the latter on loan.

The Red Devils are unbeaten since they signed Ighalo and Portuguese playmaker Bruno Fernandes in the winter.

The 30-year-old will hope to make his third start when Manchester United take on LASK in Thursday’s Europa League game at Linzer Stadion.
