Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hinted that new signing Odion Ighalo will feature against FC Club Brugge in our Europa League clash, but stopped short of saying if the Nigerian will be in the starting line-up.

Speaking about the 30-year-old ahead of the Europa League clash, the Norwegian said:

“I won’t tell the team today but we will have to rotate with all the games coming up and he’s one that could start.

“We’ve not 100% decided yet. Odion is a different type of striker, a goal scorer, we have seen him in training he knows how to play as a centre forward he’s a fantastic professional and human.

“He has already added to the squad and they’ve taken to him. We hope he will sharpen up because it’s been a while since he has played and he needs to do a little extra after training.”

Ighalo is expected to play quite a large number of games for the club with Marcus Rashford is set to spend another few months on the sidelines.
