“That energy, that positivity, that happiness, never change. You can see that smile on my face every time I go in there.
“It’s not every man’s dream that comes to pass, well mine did. My kids will grow up and see that I played for a team that I supported from when I was young, I cried when they lose and all of that.
“I want to keep doing what I need to do until the last day that I play for the club.”
Ighalo, who has scored 5 goals for the club, through 20 appearances in all competitions, said his favourite moment yet was the first time he scored for the club. Adding that it meant a lot to him because he was the first Nigerian to play and score for the Manchester United.

“I was the first Nigerian to play for Manchester United, the first Nigerian to score for Manchester United.
“I could not sleep in the night, waking up, checking my phone messages from all over the world from friends and family and all that. It means a lot to me.”
