After managing to acheive his childhood dream, via a loan deal at Manchester United in 2020, Odion Ighalo was sold by Shanghai Shenhua to a Saudi Arabian Club called Shabab on the 4th of February 2021 for the remainder of the 2020/21 season. So how has he Fared since he secured a move to this club?.
Ighalo is actually on fire for the club and has literally scored his way into the hearts of his teammates, fans and management. He has played 21 games so far which includes about 9 games this season, in which he scored a whopping 15 goals which also includes about 7 this season.
He has also assisted a total of three goals which means that he has made about 18 goal contributions in just 21 games. This is a sharp contrast to his performance at Manchester United in which he managed just 5 goals in 23 appearances.
His time at Shanghai Shenhua wasn't that memorable though, even thou he managed to score 10 goals in 19 appearances. This is because despite being sold from Changchun Yatai in 2019 where he had about 36 goals in 55 appearances, he manged just 19 appearances for the Chinese outfit.
What do you think?, Let me know in the comments section.
