Gary Neville slams Man U over Ighalo

first_imgRelatedPosts Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ Breaking: Ighalo blocked Osimhen’s Man U move — Brother I wanted Manchester United exit after one training session — Sanchez Gary Neville believes Manchester United’s last-minute loan deal for Odion Ighalo underlines their poor planning in the transfer market. Former Watford striker Ighalo, who has spent the last three years playing in China, is heading to Old Trafford on a short-term contract until the end of the season after United reached an agreement with Shanghai Shenhua on Deadline Day. The 30-year-old will provide cover for the injured Marcus Rashford, but Neville is puzzled as to why his former club did not have long-term targets lined up following the departures of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez. “They just needed a body in that area,” he said ahead of Manchester United’s meeting with Wolves, live on Sky Sports Premier League HD. “Rashford’s going to be out for another couple of months. “I can’t let the club off the hook though, unfortunately. Romelu Lukaku told us a couple of weeks ago that he had said he was going to leave last February or March. “That’s nine months to be able to manoeuvre and get into a position to sign a striker for the club for the long-term. And yet they have ended up desperately doing one on Deadline Day. “The boy may do very well. He might come in and settle in, he might score goals and do a job for the club. “But the fact that the club were in that position, knowing that Sanchez and Lukaku were leaving for many, many months, tells us that Manchester United, at this moment in time, are struggling to navigate through the transfer market smartly.” Speaking on Sky Sports News on Deadline Day, meanwhile, former United centre-back Jaap Stam said of Ighalo: “He’s got nothing to lose because nobody thought he would be a United player. “United have the confidence in him. We’re all a bit surprised, but he can just go in there and do his thing. We all want to see United get back up there. “Like all former players and United supporters, we wish him well. He’s joining a big family. Everybody within the club hopes that every player will do well and is going to perform. “I’m sure he’ll feel welcome and hopefully he’s going to produce.” “He’s now playing with better players than he was at Watford, so he will get more opportunities to score than at Watford. “I’m sure he’s got the ability. He wasn’t their first choice, but you assume people have seen him and trust what he can bring.”Tags: Alexis SanchezGary NevilleMarcus RashfordOdion IghaloRomelu LukakuSky Sports Premier Leaguelast_img read more
