Odion Ighalo names three teammates who have helped him settle at Man United

:Headline: Odion Ighalo names three teammates who have helped him settle at Man United:
Manchester United loanee Odion Ighalo earmarks three of his new teammates for special praise after making him feel particularly welcome at Old Trafford.

Odion Ighalo has named Juan Mata, David de Gea and Sergio Romero as the three players to have made him feel most welcome in the Manchester United dressing room.

Ighalo joined the Red Devils on loan from Shanghai Shenhua on January transfer deadline day, and was delayed in meeting up with his new teammates due to the outbreak of coronavirus in China.

However, the Nigeria international has since settled well at Old Trafford, scoring four goals in eight appearances across all competitions, and he reserved special thanks for his Spanish-speaking teammates for welcoming him.

"I have a lot of guys there who have helped me," Ighalo said during an Instagram Q&A.

"The guys in the dressing room are very good guys. The first time I stepped my feet in that dressing room - wow. There are two or three players that took me and made me feel welcome and comfortable.

"After two or three days we started living like brothers, like I've been there for five years, laughing together and cracking jokes together. Especially Juan Mata, De Gea and the other goalkeeper Romero, because they speak Spanish and I speak Spanish."

Ighalo has also reiterated his desire to make his loan deal at Old Trafford permanent, despite reports of a £400,000-per-week contract offer from his parent club. body check tags ::
