Former United striker Louis Saha has named two qualities he likes in new signing Odion Ighalo. The Frenchman has said the player’s strength and power will be useful to the team in our tactical play.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, the Frenchman said:

“He has a different sort of style [to other forward options] and has a lot of strength and power – the competition will be really helpful.

“Of course, when you go to a different country there’s a question of how you’re going to be when you come back, but he’s clearly a motivated lad and I’m excited to see more.”

Ighalo is expected to make his first United start on Thursday when the club host Club Brugge in the Europa League at Old Trafford.

The 30-year-old has so far made three cameo appearances (vs Chelsea, Brugge and Watford) following his January loan move.
