Manchester United striker Odion Ighalo has revealed he dreams of crowning his six months stay at Manchester United with FA Cup victory.
30-year-old Ighalo, who was signed from Shanghai Shenhua on a six months loan, has scored three goals since joining United on the last day of the transfer window.
The now-retired Super Eagles striker scored two goals in United’s last game against Derby county and now says he wants to win the FA Cup’“I watched Manchester United in the FA Cup a lot, which was great, and I loved playing in it with Watford
.“Now, I want to go far and win it, if possible, to crown my success here with the team.”
The 2019 AFCON top scorer will hope to replicate his scoring form when United host Manchester City on Sunday in the Premier League.
Meanwhile, former England head coach Steve McClaren, who was part of the United coaching staff when they won the treble in 1999, was confident that United had found the right number nine in Ighalo .
“Everybody needs a number nine. Everybody needs a target,” McClaren said on Sky Sports.
“There can be runners but there has to be a vocal point, Manchester United didn’t have that.
“Romelu Lukaku went, they’ve tried different things, false nine, it doesn’t work out, but I think with Ighalo it’s perfect because there’s lots of energy around him at the present moment and wouldn’t be surprised to see him play on Sunday.”
