Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes, says he doubted striker, Odion Ighalo’s ability to perform for the Reds Devils.

Ighalo joined United on a six-month loan deal from Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua in January, scoring four goals in eight appearances for the club.

His performance earned him a further six months extension to his loan deal with the EPL club.

Speaking with MUTV, Scholes praised the ex-Super Eagles striker for settling in well at the club.

“You have to say his (manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer) three or four signings have been excellent,” Scholes said.

“I was a little bit dubious about the Ighalo one, I wasn’t quite sure how that would work, but you have to say that’s worked as well.

“He’s a different kind of player from the players we had, a bit more of a target man, which we miss, and he seems to have settled in really well, scoring goals.”

United will resume their Premier League fixtures with a trip to London to face Tottenham Hotspurs on June 19.

The league resumed after three months break due to the coronavirus pandemic.
