Manchester United coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has come out to confirm that Odion Ighalo will face Watford in Saturday’s FA Cup tie. Ole recently revealed that it will be a special game for the Nigerian since it is against his old club.
According to him, Ighalo has been training really well of late, and he has not lost any of his sharpness or quality as a footballer.
He added that even if Odion has not had as many opportunities this season, he has never let himself down as a professional and a human being.
His words, “Odion, it’s special for him against Watford. He will be involved; he’s in the squad,”
“He’s been training really well. I was just saying before, I don’t know how many goals he scored, but he was the top scorer by a mile in the round-robin we just had in training.
“So he’s not lost any of his sharpness or his quality. It’s been difficult for him to be out of the squad as many times of course because he did really well up to the summer.
“This season he’s not had as many opportunities, but he’s never let himself down as a professional and a human being.
“In training, he always works hard and he’s been a positive influence in the dressing room. He’s in the squad and hopefully, I don’t need to put him on that we need goals, but hopefully, he can join in.”
