Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that Odion Ighalo will feature in the club’s FA Cup tie against Watford on Saturday.
This is as the former Nigerian international’s loan spell at the club nears its end after an extension caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Odion, it’s special for him against Watford, he will be involved, he’s in the squad,” said Solskjaer.
“He’s been training really well, he was the top scorer in round-robin we just finished. He’s not lost any of his quality, it’s been difficult for him to be out of the squad as many times as he has because he did really well up until the summer.
“This season he’s not had as many opportunities and not let himself down as a professional and a human being. He’s always a positive influence in the dressing room. Hopefully, I don’t need to put him on in that we need goals, but hopefully, he can join in.”
Ighalo joined United from the Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua in the January transfer window of 2020.
