Nigeria forward and Manchester United striker, Odion Jude Ighalo is optimistic that Manchester United can win the UEFA Europa League and FA Cup as well as secure a top-four finish in the English Premier League (EPL) when football resumes after CoronaVirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
He said this in a monitored interview by kick442.com on Sports Radio, Brila FM, Lagos.
“We are into every cup that we are fighting for now. First is the top four in the league. We are still in the UEFA Europa League and FA Cup. We are going for everything we have to go for and I hope before the end of the season, we will win one of the trophies if not two.” He said.
Ighalo also spoke on his first few months at Manchester United. He asserted that his teammates took him as their own as if he has been with the team for long.
“I will thank God for that. It has been great. There is no word to qualify that because I am playing for the best team in the world and living my dream. I am playing with great players and being coached by a great manager, great fans, and great support from the people here in Manchester.”
“It’s been great because, since the first day I arrived here, even in the dressing room, the lads have been great. They took me as one of their own. It didn’t even get up to 3-4 days, I settled down as if I have been there for long. Doing what I know how to do best, fighting together for one goal with everybody, and working together. The first three months, I will say, it’s been great. I am happy and I have settled down and I am ready to go. I hope this CoronaVirus pandemic didn’t last longer.” He concluded.
Before the league was halted due to CoronaVirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Odion Ighalo has scored four goals in three starts for Manchester United. His goal against LASK in the UEFA Europa League emerged as Manchester United Goal of the Month of March.
