Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes has disclosed that Odion Ighalo remains a special player for Manchester following his impact towards the end of the 2019/20 season.
Fernandes and Ighalo arrived United during the January transfer window and the duo made an immediate impact, helping the Red Devils to a 19-match unbeaten, a run that started in January and ended in July.
While the former Sporting Lisbon captain scored eight goals and recorded seven assists, Ighalo scored five and assisted one, despite playing as a back up to Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.
While speaking to the United official website, Fernandes acknowledged the impact of Odion Ighalo in the team and quickly praised the striker for his contributions last season.
“We have players on the bench who can do very well,”
‘And we have Odion [Ighalo] who can score, he can run, he’s a good sprinter.
“I think Odion is the guy with the fourth-most goals for United last season and he signed with me in January,” he said.
Ighalo and Fernandes helped United reach the semi-final of the Europa League and the English FA Cup.
They also helped the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team to qualify the UEFA Champions League next season.
