- Odion Ighalo has been rated high by Manchester United gaffer Ole Solskjaer
- Solskjaer stated that Anthony Martial is benefiting from his experience
- Anthony Martial recently scored his first career hat-trick at Manchester United
Anthony Martial has been named as the main man by Solskjaer who has been benefiting from Odion Ighalo's presence at Manchester United since the Nigerian joined in January.
Before Ighalo joined Manchester United, Anthony Martial was not in good form for the Red Devils, but the Frenchman has finally found his rhythm.
Recently, Anthony Martial scored his first hat-trick in the Premier League in which the Frenchman got praises.
“Odion is helping on the training pitch, in terms of his movement, hold-up play and just being himself. Anthony’s learning off an experienced centre-forward.
“It’s the first season that he’s really playing as a No. 9; he’s had to have that burden of the shirt and be that central focus through the middle,'' Solskjaer told Sky Sports.
Manchester United are currently occupying sixth position on the Premier League table with Ole Solskjaer and his wards trying hard to make sure they finish among the top four.
Last term they failed to make the top four and had to campaign this season in the Europa League in which their fans want them to return to Champions League.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo on Saturday, June 27, scored for Manchester United in their FA Cup win over Norwich City which sent the Red Devils to the semifinal of the championship.
The former Watford striker is now gradually fulfilling his dream of making a good name at Manchester United after breaking a record of 95 years following his goal against Norwich.
Although, Odion Ighalo has not gotten the chance to start in the Premier League for Manchester United this term as he came on as substitute in all the topflight games he has played.
But Solskjaer has been giving the Nigerian the chance to start in other competitions in which Odion Ighalo has been making good use of the advantage.
His achievement came just after a year he joined Manchester United, but injury later ruined his career at Old Trafford five years later and was forced to retire from football.
