BEVERLY HILLS, June 03, (THEWILL) – Former Manchester United forward, Dimitar Berbatov, has urged Nigerian striker, Odion Ighalo, to prove to Manchester United that they were right to extend his loan deal.
Berbatov speaking to Betfair said the striker has to fight to keep his place.
“It is great news, for club and player, United have extended the loan of Odion Ighalo.
“The way he linked with the other players, his interaction with the team and everything he did was top quality for the time he was given to play.
“Now, Ighalo has a massive challenge ahead of him to prove that it was the right decision from the club.
“Now that he’s staying until 31 January 2021, why not go out there and show the club why he should stay for even longer?
“Why not fight for a permanent contract? He’s a great boost for the team and it puts United in a strong position,” the former ManU striker said.
