- Alex Iwobi and Odion Ighalo played together for Nigeria before the Man Utd striker retired from the national team
- Both players ply their trade for English clubs Everton and Manchester United respectively
- The stars bumped into eachother on the highway ahead of their respective final league game
Alex Iwobi was full of joy when he appeared to have bumped into his former national team-mate and Manchester United striker Odion Ighalo.
A footage showing both players parked their cars exchanging pleasantries has surfaced online, with the Everton midfielder full of smiles as he brings out his mobile phone to snap Ighalo.
“Good to see you bro. Yeah, goodluck for the last game,” Ighalo said.
Meanwhile, Super Eagles legend Daniel Amokachi believes Man United on loan striker Odion Ighalo will struggle to get into the Red Devils starting XI as he is only a back-up striker at the club.
Ighalo arrived at Old Trafford in January after Marcus Rashford picked up a back injury which ruled him out of action for three months.
The Nigerian striker immediately hit the ground running with his outstanding performances for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men, scoring four goals and providing one assist in four starts.
Ighalo has scored in every single game he has started for Man United equalling a 95-year record set in 1925 by Man United great Jimmy Hanson.
But despite his five goals and one assist in 14 appearances and a contract loan extension with the Red Devils until January 2021, Ighalo has now found playing time very hard to come by.
He has been an unused substitute in Man United last two games against Southampton and Crystal Palace and according to Amokachi, Ighalo has to take the back seat now that both Rashford and Martial have found their scoring boots.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Manchester United forward Jesse Lingard seems to have been reduced to nothing by a fan who placed a bet on the player not to score or assist in the Premier League this season.
The supporter, named Antony Johnson staked £3.30 on the England international to fire blanks all through the campaign.
With two more games left for the Red Devils this campaign, Johnson's prediction will likely be realised as it is unsure if the player would be handed a starting berth in those fixtures.
