Congratulations and abrupt criticisms are in order for New Manchester United Player, Odion Ighalo.
The Nigerian social sphere ain’t having it as they are yet to absorb Ighalo’s surprise move to Manchester.
The English football giants late on Friday night agreed a deal with Shanghai Shenhua of China to sign Ighalo on a six months contract, making him the first Nigerian to officially play for the senior men’s team.
Ighalo, born in Ajegunle, with stints at Udinese and Watford will reportedly earn about £130,000 (N62m) per week at his new club for the six months he will be at the club.
The deal doesn’t include an option to sign, so Man U. has no obligation to keep him beyond six months if he doesn’t perform well.
Ighalo will replace the injured Marcus Rashford in Manchester United’s line up.
A Big Congrats to him!!
