While speaking to Man Utd’s official website, Manchester United’s new signing Odion Ighalo has nothing but praise for Anthony Martial and has hailed him as a player who can do magic with the ball.

The Nigerian was earlier playing at Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua and arrived at the Old Trafford on a loan deal until the end of the season on the deadline day. He will be expected to provide some much-needed depth to United’s forward options.

And when talking about the Red Devils’ competition at the top end of the pitch, Ighalo hailed new teammate Martial as someone who can provide that something extra.

Odion Ighalo has picked Anthony Martial as his favourite player at Manchester United.

He said:

These players are great players. Greenwood is a very good player; young, very good left foot, I’ve watched some of his game. Martial is very skilful, he can do so much magic with the ball and Rashford I think is, for me, one of the best, if not the best, young players in Europe right now.

“So, for me, it is just a plus to the team, to work hard with these guys and make sure we end the season very well.”

It may have just been a few words, but Ighalo’s assessment of Martial makes for some very impressive reading.
