Former Super Eagles captain, Kanu Nwankwo is optimistic that his compatriot Odion Ighalo can fill the gap left at Man Utd by Romelu Lukaku.

He said, “Yes he can replace him. If you watch him play, you’d find out that he is strong and can score goals.

“I am sure his game will improve because the team has great players.” Ighalo joined Manchester United on Loan from Chinese league as he looks forward to play his first game with the Red Devils.
