- Paul Scholes has stated that Odion Ighalo silenced his doubters
- This is because of his great performances for Manchester United so far
- Scholes was among those who criticized the signing of Odion Ighalo
Paul Scholes has stated emphatically that Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo has silenced his doubters after his impressive games at Old Trafford.
Paul Scholes was among the critics who attacked the transfer of Odion Ighalo to Manchester United with the thought that the Nigerian would flop.
But Odion Ighalo proved Scholes and others wrong that he is a good scorer netting four goals for Manchester United after eight games before the League was suspended.
Premier League season will resume later this month in which Manchester United players and other clubs are preparing for their games.
Although, Odion Ighalo is yet to score a Premier League goal for Manchester United even as he is optimistic of netting.
“You have to say his [Solskjaer] three or four signings have been excellent.
‘'I was a little bit dubious about the Ighalo one, I wasn’t quite sure how that would work, but you have to say that’s worked as well. ‘He’s a different kind of player from the players we had, a bit more of a target man which we miss and he seems to have settled in really well, scoring goals,'' Scholes told MUTV.
Manchester will be leaving Old Trafford for London to face Jose Mourinho and his men in their coming Premier League games.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Victor Osimhen confirmed his readiness to welcome back Manchester United striker Odion Ighalo back to the Super Eagles if the striker wants to return.
There have been talks of Victor Osimhen returning to the Super Eagles since he joined Manchester United in January in which the player has not made a statement on it.
Odion Ighalo decided to hang his international boots after the 2019 African Cup of Nations in Egypt where Nigeria finished as third best in the championship.
He finished as the highest goal scorer in the tournament with fives goals before he quit the Super Eagles.
And since he stepped out, Victor Osimhen has been leading Super Eagles attack and has been impressive even before Ighalo retired.
Speaking about the possibility of Odion Ighalo returning to the Super Eagles, Victor Osimhen explained that he will be glad to see him return.
