Ighalo blast critics on Manchester United move, says ‘I don’t go down low replying people’

Manchester United striker, Odion Jude Ighalo says he does not have time to “go down low replying people” who criticise him.

The 30-year-old forward made a surprised deadline day transfer move to Manchester United on a six-month loan deal from Chinese Super League club, Shanghai Shenhua.

Speaking on his Instagram Live with Heart of Midlothian forward, Uche Ikpeazu, Ighalo said he pictured his Manchester United career before making the move.

“Before I was coming to Man United, I was picturing what I want to go through there, what I want to attain there. While people were talking, did you see me say a word? I didn’t say a word, I don’t go down low and start replying people.”

Ighalo has scored 4 goals and assisted one in 8 appearances in all competitions, averaging a goal every 45 minutes before the season was suspended abruptly due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.

With his current form, Manchester United have offered him a three-year deal worth £100,000 a week, while parent club, Shanghai Shenhua have also offered to increase his £300,000 a week deal to £400,000 with a fresh two years extension.

The former Watford man revealed after joining the Red Devils that he has fulfilled his childhood dreams of playing for Manchester United, which he is a fan.
