MANCHESTER (ENGLAND) – Odion Jude Ighalo had dreamed of another type of reception in Manchester. The Nigerian footballer, after years of apprenticeship, managed to move to the club of his dreams but United immediately put him in "quarantine" for the period of time necessary and in compliance with national health prophylaxis.
Coronavirus. Ighalo, shock start with Manchester United: he was quarantined.
All this because Ighalo arrived in England on loan from the Chinese of Shanghai Shenhua. Shanghai has nothing to do with Wuhan, the city where Coronavirus occurred for the first time, but Manchester United preferred to move cautiously to protect the health of the other members of the English club.
During this quarantine period, Ighalo cannot train with the rest of the team, nor can he sleep in the same hotels. The Nigerian striker is training alone, in a gym and sleeping in a different hotel than the one where the other members of the club rest. The Nigerian bomber will only be able to make his Manchester United shirt after the national health prophylaxis is complete.
Ighalo is an old acquaintance of Italian football. The Nigerian footballer played in our country with the shirts of Udinese and Cesena. Then the Pozzo took him to England with Watford. In recent years he had ended up in China where he received pharaonic wages. Now he has decided to get back into the game in Europe by signing with the club of his dreams, Manchester United.
