Why Manchester United need Ighalo

New signing Odion Ighalo has been backed by his former coach to succeed at United.

According to Fatai Amoo, Manchester United lacks a natural number 9 and that is why United needs the Nigerian international.

“On a human angle by my own assessment of Manchester United and the player, he will succeed,” Amoo told Tribal Football.

“And at a professional angle, Man Utd lacks a natural number 9 and that is the role Ighalo plays.

“I know that it will not be easy, but with hard work and of course, I know that he is very dedicated to his work as a professional, I hope he will succeed. What is remaining is for God to bless and favour his work with success.

“He knows that he is going to wear a big responsibility now at Man Utd and I think he has the attributes to be successful at Old Trafford.”

Ighalo joined the club from Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua on loan until the end of the season.
