Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said Odion Ighalo could start in the first leg Round of 32 of their Europa League game against Club Brugge on Thursday.
Solskjaer disclosed this new development in a pre-match press conference.
He said, “I won’t tell the team today but we will have to rotate with all the games coming up and he’s one that could start, we’ve not 100% decided yet,”
“Odion is a different type of striker, a goal scorer, we have seen him in training he knows how to play as a centre forward he’s a fantastic professional and human.’’
After playing for few minutes in the Premier League against Chelsea on Monday, the Red Devils boss has hinted the 30-year-old could get more minutes under his belt when they face the Belgian outfit.
The former Watford forward joined the Red Devils on a short-term loan deal from Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua in January.
The Red Devils boss confirmed the former Nigeria international could enjoy more minutes when they take on Philippe Clement’s men in Belgium.
