Odion Ighalo to make Man United farewell appearance against Watford in FA Cup


Odion Ighalo is now on the verge of making his last competitive appearance for Manchester United on Saturday, January 9, as the Red Devils will be facing Watford in FA Cup third round.

The Nigerian striker has been struggling for games this season under Manchester United manager Ole Solskjaer who is not considering him for action.

Ighalo actually joined Manchester United from Shanghai Shenhua on loan and was incredible when he joined the Red Devils scoring in the FA Cup and Europa League.

The outbreak of COVID-19 also affected his game at Old Trafford as Odion Ighalo would have gotten more action when Marcus Rashford was injured.

However, the former Super Eagles striker finished last season with Manchester United and his contract was extended for another six months.

Ighalo has not played any Premier League game this season for Manchester United as Ole Solskjaer has completely ignored the Nigerian.

According to the report by Manchester United Fans Live, Odion Ighalo is expected to face Watford in the English FA Cup before he would leave Old Trafford.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are currently occupying second position on the Premier League table with 33 points after 16 games played this term.
