“Every man’s dream doesn’t come to pass, but mine did” – Odion Ighalo
Manchester United striker, Odion Ighalo has stated that he is happy to be playing for the club he supported as a boy and will continue to give his all whenever called upon by manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
31-year-old Ighalo, since joining the club on February 1, has found regular game time hard to come by.
Shanghai Shenhua approved an extension of his initial 6 months loan move till 2021.
Ighalo has now said despite his lack of game time, he will not let his struggles for game time dampen his record-breaking move to Manchester.
Speaking with BBC Sport, he said: “That energy, that positivity, that happiness, never change. You can see that smile on my face every time I go in there.
“It’s not every man’s dream that comes to pass, well mine did. My kids will grow up and see that I played for a team that I supported from when I was young, I cried when they lose and all of that.
“I want to keep doing what I need to do until the last day that I play for the club.”
The Nigerian player who has netted five goals for United, through 20 appearances in all competitions, said he will never forget the first time he scored for the English Premier League club.
