Antonio Valencia has sent a classy message to Odion Ighalo after the striker took over his No.25 shirt at Manchester United.
Ighalo, 30, completed a six-month loan move from Shanghai Greenland Shenhua to Old Trafford this January, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer desperate to strengthen United’s attacking options to ease the pressure on Marcus Rashford.
The Nigeria international may need a few weeks before he’s available for selection, though, as the Chinese Super League only came to an end in December.
I always saw the number 25 as an opportunity to work beyond my dreams. It has been my inspiration and became my amulet. I wish you all the success now with this shirt brother! pic.twitter.com/B8f7iE32QN

Ighalo will be familiar to fans of the Premier League after a three-season spell with Watford in which he scored 39 goals in 99 appearances.
