Former super eagles midfielder Daniel Amokachi has adviced Nigerian supporters of Manchester united particularly those of Odion Ighalo to lower their expections, regarding the Nigerian striker getting enough playing time ahead of other first team players.

Ighalo in a surprise move joined Manchester united from Shanghai Shenhua, to provide cover for the then injured Marcos Rashford and has performed very well in the few games he has played scoring 5 goals in 4 starts. But for the corona virus break in football around the world and now the recovery of Rashford from injury, the retired Nigerian international is now relegated to the bench. Speaking about the issue on Brilla FM, the bull gave reasons why Ighalo is not getting enough playing time.

‘’We cannot expect him to have more playing time because he is merely there to provide backup for Rashford and Anthony Martial’’.

The bull acknowledged that Ighalo was brought in to play as starter due to Injury to Marcus Rashford and his contributions were recognized by the club hence the extension of his loan deal.
