…Ighalo to remain at United after loan extension
Nigeria’s Manchester United striker, Odion Ighalo has said that the club is ready to get into full swing action as the English Premier League (EPL) resumes in few days.
“I can wait for the league to start again. I’m really looking forward to it,” Ighalo said.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United’s team were on an 11-game unbeaten campaign when football was suspended on March 31, a sequence that included nine victories.
Ighalo, who has extended his loan spell until January 2021, believes the Red Devils, in the hunt for a top-four place and FA Cup and Europa League glory are perfectly fit ahead of the restart.
“I’m getting better and better every day,” he revealed.
“I’m still working every day and we’ve been training together the past two weeks now, so it’s getting close to the game.
“The sharpness is coming, the fitness is coming and everything is going well. It’s been strange, you know, because you have to stay two metres apart to talk to your team mates.
