Odion Ighalo makes big claim on Cavani’s arrival at Old Trafford


This is the first time Nigerian International striker, Odion Ighalo would be speaking in public since the arrival of Edison Cavani at Man United on the transfer deadline day.

The Uruguayan international joined the Red Devils on a free transfer which is arguably a threat to Odion Ighalo.

It is believed that the playing time of the former Watford striker will be further reduced with the arrival of Edison Cavani. Odion Ighalo is currently at Man United on loan and is expected to return back to his Chinese based club in January.

In his chat with the press, Odion Ighalo stated that the coming of Edison Cavani is not a threat to him, adding that it will help the team going forward and ensure everyone gets to his best.

He adds that he is always ready for the challenge and will give his best each time he is called upon by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Odion Ighalo is known for his goal scoring reputation when he was with Premier League outfit Watford before leaving to China.

However, the 33-year-old is expected to lead the attack for the Red Devils as they have been short in that department so far this season.
