Giggs: Why Ighalo Is Different From Other Manchester United Strikers

Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has given reasons why Odion Ighalo is different from other Red Devils strikers.

United and Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua reached an agreement to extend Ighalo’s contract until January 2021 earlier this week.

And Giggs who expressed delight that Ighalo will remain for one more season, says the former Nigeria international gives Solskjaer a genuine centre forward presence the rest of his strikers lack.

“He’s different, he’s a centre forward where as the other players can play out wide,” Giggs was quoted in Sky Sports.

“He gives you something extra off the bench when he’s not starting. Centre forwards always want to score goals, he’s done that everywhere he has gone.

“It’s positive that he is able to stay because he has done well. He makes an impact when he’s on the pitch.”

On Ighalo’s fellow January signing Bruno Fernandes, Giggs says he likes what he has seen but argued it was too early to draw any comparisons on his impact at United with that of club icon Eric Cantona.

Giggs said: “Ole’s signings have been good, not only as players but they are good people. Fernandes coming in has given everyone a lift, it’s an exciting end to the season.

“It’s early doors to be talking about the players who have come in and made an impact [such as Eric Cantona] but certainly he’s off to a great start.

“He’s made players around him better and has just fitted in straight away. That’s always what you pray for when a new signing comes in.

“He looks a good guy as well, he wants to play for the club. He’s exciting, when he receives the ball he will try things, if something doesn’t come off he will try it again, he’s brilliant to watch.

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has issued an emotional apology top fans after his side’s display in their humiliating loss to Tottenham.

The Red Devils were humbled as former manager Jose Mourinho’s side cruised to a 6-1 win at Old Trafford.

Bruno Fernandes scored a penalty after one minute but defensive errors saw Tanguy Ndombele and Son Heung-Min secure the lead by 10 minutes.

After a red card for Anthony Martial, Harry Kane slotted into an open net while Son grabbed a second before half time.

Lesson to learn from today’s game

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was the victim of a footballing massacre in Manchester after suffering his darkest hour at Old Trafford.

Solskjaer and his spineless United flops were left with faces as red as their shirts following their biggest hammering since 2011.

The fact it was Tottenham and former boss Jose Mourinho who delivered it just rubbed more salt into United’s gaping wounds – ones that could take a long, long time to heal.

United had been reduced to 10 men before half time, but this had little bearing on the eventual outcome.

The day had started with the news Edinson Cavani had jetted into Manchester to undergo a medical ahead of a free transfer to United.

part of the medical should have included him having his head examined – because the Uruguayan striker must be mad to even contemplate joining a team that now concedes goals for fun due to its defence being nowhere near the standards expected or required at this level.

Ousmane Dembele is reportedly now keen on signing for Manchester United – but Barcelona aren’t on board.

The France international has been linked with a shock move to Old Trafford as an alternative to the club’s number one target Jadon Sancho.

United have previously enquired about Dembele’s availability, but the former Borussia Dortmund forward snubbed their approaches.

Dembele has since fallen down the pecking order at the Camp Nou, and this, coupled with reports he has spoken to Paul Pogba about a move to Man United, suggest he’s had a change of heart.
