Odion Ighalo names the Man Utd star that's impressed him most in training
Manchester United forward Odion Ighalo has revealed Anthony Martial is the player that’s impressed him most since his move to Old Trafford.
The Nigerian completed a shock move to the north-west in January when he signed a short-term loan deal from Shanghai Shenhua.
The 30-year-old is a lifelong United fan and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen on signing the Nigerian on a permanent basis this summer after he bagged four goals in his first eight appearances.
Ighalo’s lifted the mood at the club since his arrival and he’s brought out the best in other players around him, including Martial.
The Frenchman was in sensational form before the Premier League was forced into suspension and when asked to name the player he’s been most impressed with, Ighalo named Martial.
‘Anthony, since I came, he’s been scoring goals and doing so well, fighting a lot. He is a great player, he has great technique,’ said Ighalo.
He can do anything with the ball and he’s been doing fantastically well. I just hope he keeps going and scoring more goals and we end the season very well.
‘Watching it from outside it’s different. You only watch games every weekend and see how skilful he is. But I train with this guy every day, you understand? Every blessed day I train with him, and it’s incredible what he does in training, do you understand? He does it so easy, you know?
‘Sometimes in games it’s difficult to do it, sometimes you face a tougher opponent but this is someone who every day you see in training and say wow, he’s a good player.‘
United are still working on a deal for Ighalo and are confident that a fee of around £15m can be agreed.
The forward’s loan deal runs until June but that could be extended as the Premier League is likely to run beyond that date.
Premier League bosses hope to resume the season on June 6th, though the date susceptible to further delays.
