EPL: You treated me badly at Manchester United – Ighalo blasts Solskjaer

Nigerian striker, Jude Odion Ighalo recently revealed that the Manager of Manchester United, Ole Solskjaer was unfair to him during his brief stay in the Red Devils.

Ighalo joined the Red Devils in January 2020 on a six-month loan deal from Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua.

He impressed the fans and manager at the beginning, scoring five goals in as many starts, a form that saw his loan extended until January 2021.

He was quoted to have said: “There wasn’t much possibility because I wanted more playing time,” Ighalo told Sky Sports when asked if he could have extended his stay with United.

“At my age, I want to play and not just sit on the bench and not have any minutes.

“I didn’t just want to be there picking up a salary – I wanted to be involved so I said to my agent that if an offer comes in, I will look at it and see what’s best for me, which is what I did.

“After my initial loan was extended, I did not play much which was perhaps a bit unfair but as I said, I am always grateful for the opportunity.”
