Next Monday, Manchester United will travel to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea. On this occasion, the second Manchester United signee from the winter transfer window Odion Ighalo (30 years old) should be on the trip.
After being quarantined for fifteen days for fear of spreading the coronavirus, the Nigerian attacker can finally participate in group sessions.
Present at a press conference, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer spoke about the case of his recruit. It should not start the game against the Blues, however.
“I never said he was going to be ready to play on Monday. He will be with us and he will travel with us. It came out of that two week period, just a precaution that we took. We will see if he will play or not. We stayed in touch with him and provided him with our own training program. He will have to integrate and get used to the players and the team as quickly as possible. He worked very hard, ” said the Norwegian manager of the Red Devils.
Odion Ighalo could therefore play his first minutes in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge…
