According to former Nigeria forward Wizz, Ole Gunnar Solskar has required more confidence in on-loan striker Odion Ighalo.

Igloo’s arrival from Shanghai Xinhua in January raised eyebrows but he responded with five goals in eight matches in the Europa League and FA Cup. However, he did not play larger than 20 minutes within a single Premier League match during 2019-20.

In the new year, With his extended loan deal, Eazyji feels Igloo needs to look elsewhere because he won’t get enough opportunities at United – despite that he has a boyhood club.

‘Every coach believes his starting XI and Igloo are very appropriate, the COVID situation didn’t help him, because if not for COVID, [Marcus] Rashford would still be out by the end of the season, “Ezji stated with a goal.

‘And when Rashford recovered, because of Ole’s faith in Rashford, he had to take him back k to the team.

‘And after then you can see that Anthony Marshall was firing on all cylinders, similar to [Mason] Greenwood, so none of those guys was going to leave for Ole Igloo.’

‘But where I make a mistake is that whenever these people are not meeting in some games, I think they should have tried igloo.

‘It was not really good that a player’s contract was renewed and you didn’t even allow him to play for 20 minutes of a Premier League game. It’s not encouraging. It gives the player all the confidence built over time. Loses.’

Ezzie believes that if he were given more chances, Igloo could have made a dream move for Old Trafford.

He said, if Igloo had been playing regularly to play, it would have boosted his confidence and perhaps Manchester United would have tried to buy him permanently, but that did not happen.

‘Ighalo had to cut his wages to live in Manchester. I think he has fulfilled his dream of playing for them, but now it is for him to look elsewhere.’

United began their Premier League campaign on Saturday with a home game against Crystal Palace, with Iglo likely to debut on the bench.
