Odion Ighalo’s Receives A Call From Manchester United Legend

It was a remarkable moment for the former Nigerian forward, Odion Ighalo to receive a call from a Manchester United legend, whom he grew up watching on television.

The Manchester United forward, Odion Ighalo was surprised to receive a call from legend Andy Cole during a media session.

After joining the Red Devils on a six-month loan from Shanghai Shenhua in January, Ighalo revealed that the former English striker was one of the players he watched when growing up.

The 30-year-old striker is gradually finding his feet in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team, and scored a goal in his first start in the Uefa Europa League last Thursday.

Ighalo was just beaming during the conversation while answering Cole’s questions.

The 48-year-old, who won five Premier League titles and one Uefa Champions League trophy at Old Trafford, wrapped up the chat with best wishes for the Nigerian forward to enjoy his stay in Manchester.

Ighalo has played five matches across all competitions, and he will be hoping to find the back of the net when Manchester United visit Wayne Rooney’s Derby County for their FA Cup fifth-round match on Thursday.
