Following his shock January transfer deadline day move from Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua to Premier League giants Manchester United, Ighalo has so far impressed.
Ighalo has made seven appearances for United, scoring three goals in all competitions.
And impressive showings have not gone unnoticed by some big names in football.
Former assistant manager to Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United, Steve McClaren, described Ighalo as the perfect number for the Red Devils.
McClaren stated this while analysing Ighalo’s performance in United’s 3-0 FA Cup win against Derby County where he netted a brace.
“Everybody needs a number nine. Everybody needs a target,” the former England head coach said on Sky Sports.
“There can be runners but there has to be a vocal point, Manchester United didn’t have that.
“(Romelu) Lukaku went, they’ve tried different things, false nine, it doesn’t work out, but I think with Ighalo it’s perfect because there’s lots of energy around him at the present moment…”
Former Liverpool and United striker, Michael Owen, said Ighalo was a great Plan B striker for the Old Trafford outfit.
“Ighalo – look at the strength and awareness. I like him, I must admit. I think he’s a great alternative,” Owen remarked.
Former Nigeria international, Nwankwo Kanu suggested that Ighalo be called out of international retirement if he does well for United.
“Nigeria needs every good player no matter where they are playing or their age,” Kanu was quoted by Goal.
“If he performs for Manchester United we will ask him to comeback and tell him to forget what he said [international retirement].”
Dear reader, following all the positive reviews Ighalo has been getting, do you think he should come out of international retirement and play for the Super Eagles again?
