‘Where Is Odion Ighalo?’ – Manchester United’s Nigerian Fans Ask Solskjaer After Loss To Arsenal
The London club secured three points thanks to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who converted a penalty, awarded by referee Mike Dean after Paul Pogba fouled Bellerin in the area on 68 minutes.
Bukayo Saka, playing as a left wing-back in a 3-4-3 formation, went the distance for the visitors but Odion Ighalo was not in the 18 for the fourth time in the new Premier League season.
The Shanghai Shenhua loanee has been limited to only starts in the Carabao Cup and his long-term future at United has been thrown into doubt after the club made a move for Edinson Cavani on deadline day.
Some Manchester United Nigerian fans have questioned the decision of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær to drop Ighalo from the squad for Premier League games and others feel the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations top scorer is a better option than the Uruguay marksman.
Here’s what they are saying on Twitter :
@gbagamus1 : “where Is Odion Ighalo? So painful where he found himself”.
@adetoku59641646 : “The question here is that you bought players and you did not use them , you management needs to work on your self .the question here where is odion ighalo? you keep him on that team for what ? because I don’t really understand or you management don’t want African man. @Evra”.
@destayo67 : “So favour over labour no favour ighalo again for man u?”.
@UncleChike_ : “Is it over for Ighalo at United?”.
@Banksworld1 : “Martial still serving his red card, u had two strikers on the bench, Cavani and Ighalo, u decided to play idiot pogba at flank , Rashford and Greenwood got confused on what position they were playing”.
@Skidoolina : “What exactly is Ighalo doing at United? He is leaving in January, we are in November and He hasn’t played any match this season and wasn’t in so many Match day squad. So why did we fight so hard to keep Him?”
@amtokzy : “Ighalo is far better than cavani and I don’t why we played without a striker”.
@AyZico : “Ighalo >>>>>>>>>>>>> Cavani”.
@Reyblinkx_VMT : “Ole didn’t use the right player at the right time, I’ll keep asking where’s ighalo why did we sign him if we won’t be using him ..”
@playemekaa : “Ole has Odion Ighalo and Edison Cavani in the first team and decides to start with Bruno Fernandes. This once again reveals his weak tactical acumen.”
@IamTheIroko : “So what does Cavani bring into this team that Ighalo doesn’t have ? Ole is clueless abeg.”
@walekroos : “Is Ighalo still in Man Utd?”
