Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hopes Odion Ighalo will continue his impressive showing for the Red Devils as they continue their chase for a Champions League ticket, reports Completesports.com.
Ighalo, who celebrated his 31st birthday on Wednesday has proven to be a shrewd signing for the Premier League giants after arriving on loan from Chinese Super League outfit Shanghai Shenhua on transfer deadline day.
United reached an agreement with Shanghai Shenhua to extend his loan deal until January 2021 last month, which offers Ighalo the chance to continue his sojourn with his boyhood club.
Solskjaer, who is extremely delighted to see the former Watford man remain at Old Trafford hopes the striker can continue his amazing form for the club.
“We’re delighted Odion is staying with us. We had a good conversation with his club and Odion’s made a great impact when he came, so that’s very pleasing, ” Solskjaer told a press conference ahead of United’s Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur.
” He gives us another option up front, he is a goalscorer and what he does in and around the dressing room as well is great. I hope he’s going to continue and finish off what he has started. ”
