Former Super Eagles striker Odion Ighalo has on Tuesday expressed his excitement after his loan move to Manchester United was extended despite the coronavirus pandemic.
Ighalo joined the club on loan from Shanghai Shenhua in January due to the COVID-19 situation then prevailing in China.
It looked then as if the 30-year-old’s career with United might amount to just eight games given his original deal was due to expire on May 31.
But ahead of the Premier League season resuming on June 17, United said Monday they had agreed with Shenhua to extend Ighalo’s loan move until January.
Amidst his sadness that the fans won’t be able to watch them in the stadium, He is very optimistic about the remainder of the season plus the incoming new season challenge with United.
