Ighalo bids farewell to Man Utd, prays for Premier League, FA Cup triumph


Odion Ighalo

Nigerian international, Odion Ighalo has bid farewell to his dream club, Manchester United, as his Old Trafford contract runs out at the end of this month.

The former Watford striker joined Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side in January 2020 from Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua on an initial six-month deal that was later extended to 12 months.

He leaves the club with five goals in 18 appearances during the 2019-20 campaign, helping the club to three semifinals, including last season’s Europa League loss to Sevilla.

In an emotional farewell to United on social media, Ighalo said: “It’s so hard to see this dream come to an end. But I give God the glory for helping me fulfill this life long dream of putting on a Manchester United shirt as a player and represent this great club, it was indeed an honor I will forever cherish and be grateful for.

“To the manager, I say thank you for trusting and believing in me when many did not, to my amazing team mates I will miss you guys, it was always fun and a time I look forward to training and spending time with all of you. And I pray we win the LEAGUE and FA cup this year.

“To the best fans in the world (the Manchester United fans) we have missed you, but we hear your voices cheering us on from afar, we can’t wait to have you all back on the stands.

“I’m still and would remain a MANCHESTER UNITED FAN forever. Once a Red, always a Red. Thank you @manchesterunited and God bless.”
