- Odion Ighalo has joined other players in self-isolation amid the spread of coronavirus
- The deadly virus has forced all football activities across the globe to be suspended
- Ighalo has been superb for the Red Devils scoring four goals in eight matches in all competitions
Manchester United winter signing Odion Ighalo has joined the list of superstars self-isolating in a bid to contain the deadly coronavirus.
The Nigerian football star joined the Red Devils in January 2020 on a six months loan deal from Shanghai Shenhua.
There are reports that Ole Gunnar Solakjser is planning to hand the former Super Eagles striker a permanent deal if he maintains his form until the end of the season.
Ighalo has scored four goals and one assist in eight appearances across competitions for the Old Trafford outfit.
And he could add more to the tally depending on how much playing time he gets under the management of Solskjaer.
The striker's first for Man United came in their FA Cup fifth-round victory over Derby County earlier this month. His remaining two goals were recorded in the Europa League.
His sweaty pictures suggested that he has been working so hard despite the league being on hold for the time being.
Meanwhile, with football activities all on old in most European countries, the AFCON 2019 golden boot winner has decided to quarantine himself despite no case of the virus recorded at United.
Though a few Premier League stars including Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has tested positive for the virus, reports claim they are getting better by the day.
