Ighalo explains not staying in the Premier League after Manchester United
There is news about former Super Eagles of Nigeria forward Odion Ighalo.
Ighalo fulfilled his childhood dream to play for Manchester United the club he supported growing up.
In an interview with Skysports, Ighalo details how he snubbed Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham for Manchester United and also why he did not stay in the Premier League.
Speaking about possibly staying beyond January at Manchester United Ighalo said, “I didn’t just want to be there picking up a salary – I wanted to be involved so I said to my agent that if an offer comes in, I will look at it and see what’s best for me, which is what I did.
“There was the possibility of West Ham and West Brom to stay in the Premier League, which I thought about.
“But after being at Manchester United, the biggest club in England if not the world, what else could I possibly do in the Premier League?
“I had good offers to stay in England, but I just didn’t think I could stay after achieving my dream of playing for the club I had supported since I was young.
“I came all the way from China because it was Manchester United when I had already rejected other offers because United has always been my dream.”
