‘It’s so hard to see this dream come to an end’ — Ighalo bids farewell to Man United

Odion Ighalo, former Super Eagles forward, says it’s so hard to see his dream of playing for Manchester United “come to an end”.


The 31-year-old striker took to his social media pages on Monday to pen a parting message to United fans as his one-year loan deal with the club expires at the end of this month.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had signed the Nigeria international from Shanghai Shenhua, a Chinese club, on transfer deadline day in January 2020 before extending the contract by six months later.

The arrival of Edinson Cavani from Paris Saint-Germain last summer, however, pushed Ighalo down the pecking order.


In the post on Tuesday night, the former Watford and Granada player said he is thankful for the experience gained as a Red Devils player.

He also stressed that he still holds a deep level of love for his boyhood club while appreciating his teammates for supporting him.

“It’s so hard to see this dream come to an end. But I give God the glory for helping me fulfill this life long dream of putting on a Manchester United shirt as a player and represent this great club, it was indeed an honor I will forever cherish and be grateful for,” Ighalo wrote.


“To the Manager I say thank you for trusting and believing in me when many did not, to my amazing team mates I will miss you guys, it was always fun and a time i look forward to training and spending time with all of you. And I pray we win the LEAGUE and FA cup this year.

“To the best fans in the world ( the Manchester United fans ) we have missed you, but we hear your voices cheering us on from afar, we can’t wait to have you all back on the stands.

“I’m still and would remain a MANCHESTER UNITED FAN forever. Once a Red, always a Red

“Thank you @manchesterunited and God bless.”


Ighalo netted five goals in total for Manchester United with all of them scored in the Europa League and FA Cup.
