Manchester United legend, Ryan Giggs, has praised Odion Ighalo’s impact at the club since joining in January while explaining what differentiates him from other strikers at the club.
Last week, the Nigeria striker’s loan deal at Manchester was extended until January 2021 after his impressive three months of playing at the club after joining on an initial five-month loan from Shanghai Shenhua.
Giggs who won 13 Premier League titles with the Red Devils before becoming a coach first at Manchester United then at Wales, is delighted Ighalo will be staying at Manchester United for the next six months.
“He’s different, he’s a centre forward whereas the other players can play out wide,” he was quoted as saying by Sky Sports.
“He gives you something extra off the bench when he’s not starting. Centre forwards always want to score goals, he’s done that everywhere he has gone.
“It’s positive that he is able to stay because he has done well. He makes an impact when he’s on the pitch.”
