Osimhen ‘ll be perfect fit for Man United – Ighalo

Odion Ighalo

Al Hilal striker, Odion Ighalo has advised Super Eagles forward, Victor Osimhen to pitch his tent with Manchester United even as the inform striker wins the player of the month for February in Serie A.



The former Liille forward has been having a terrific campaign for Napoli this season, leading the league goalscoring chart with 19 goals.

He scored in all six matches he played in the month under review.

This latest accolade is coming on the heels of the 2022 Best Foreign Athlete Award he won just three days ago.

Other awards he has recently bagged include Emerging Player of the Year Award at the 2022 Globe Awards and the 2021/2022 Serie A Young Player of the Year Award.

His partnership with teammate Khvicha Kvaratskhelia has been menacing to defences in Europe this season as both have paired up to making Napoli a formidable force both on the domestic and international fronts.

The Nigerian international has been linked with some of the big clubs in Europe ahead of the summer transfer window.

However, Ighalo told Osimhen to move to Manchester United.

‘I think it’s a good fit because he is a young boy, he runs and he can score goals,’ Ighalo told Sky Sports News.

‘Having Victor Osimhen and Rashford in the top at Manchester United will cause any defender panic because they are two fast players and they are goalscorers. I think he will fit in Manchester United so well.

‘I know him so well, he’s like a brother to me. We talk every once in a while, I advise him, I talk to him and I tell him to keep working hard and believe in himself, which he is doing. He is on the right path.

‘He is a goalscorer, he never stops. Osimhen is like an ant. He is a striker that doesn’t give defenders a chance to rest, he is always going to be on you, he is always going to press you and he is not afraid.

Osimhen recently spoke about his future and revealed that he is working hard to achieve his dream of playing in the Premier League.



Ighalo enjoyed 12 months with United before leaving for Saudi Arabia.
