- Odion Ighalo took to social media to reveal the song that motivates him
- The Nigerian star sang along in his car to Nathaniel Bassey's song after arriving at Man United's training
- The gospel artist was elated and showered praises on the striker for doing the country proud at Old Trafford
Nigerian star Odion Ighalo appears to have confirmed the song that gave him the motivation to hit the ground running when he joined Manchester United earlier this year.
The 30-year-old former Super Eagles striker joined the Red Devils from Chinese Super outfit Shanghai Shenhua on a six months loan deal.
Meanwhile, the elongation of the season due to the coronavirus pandemic forced United to extend the former Watford star's stay at Old Trafford until the end of January 2021.
The attacker has recorded five goals and one assist in 17 appearances across competitions since his dream move to the club about seven months back.
However, not many seem to know his driving force despite just returning to the Premier League for the first time since he left the Hornets for China a few years ago.
Ighalo took to social media to post a short video of himself singing along to Nathaniel Bassey's song titled There is a Place while in his car at the club's training ground.
And almost immediately, the Nigerian gospel artist replied, saying: "So this is the song that makes our brother score for Man United right? Man United must come and pay o. Bless you, bro, & keep shining Ighalo Jude."
Ighalo hopes to help the Red Devils win the Europa League title following their ousting from the FA Cup recently.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Alex Iwobi was full of excitement when he appeared to have bumped into his former national teammate and Manchester United striker Ighalo.
Footage showing both players parking their cars and exchanging pleasantries has surfaced online, with the Everton midfielder full of smiles as he brings out his mobile phone to snap Ighalo.
Meanwhile, Super Eagles legend Daniel Amokachi believes Man United on loan striker Ighalo will struggle to get into the Red Devils starting XI as he is only a back-up striker at the club.
