Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted that Nigerian star Odion Ighalo is an important member of the club.

The 47-year-old said this after naming the former Super Eagles striker in the Red Devils squad ahead of their Champions League encounter against Paris Saint Germain.

With his current deal with the Red Devils set to expire in January, the 31-year-old has made just three appearances without a goal across competitions for the Old Trafford outfit.

Commending the former Watford forward, Solskjaer told the media during his pre-match conference that Ighalo has impressed in the few games he featured in so far.

“As a team and club, we always want to get players in. And Edison coming in, we will give him time to adapt to the Premier League and as a team gets his fitness and sharpness back.
“And we’ve had some very good performances by Odion and he is still very important part of this squad.”

The 2019 Africa Cup of Nations’ highest goals scorer in Egypt joined Man United from Shanghai Shenhua on a short-term loan deal, but the club secured an extension for another six months.

He has now scored a total of five goals and one assist in 22 appearances in all matches since he joined them.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Manchester United will miss the services of the trio of Mason Greenwood, Edinson Cavani and Harry Maguire when they take on Paris Saint-Germain in their first round of Champions League group fixture on Tuesday, October 20.

It was initially thought Cavani could make his United bow against his former side, but the veteran striker who joined the Red Devils on a free transfer missed the travelling party.

On the other hand, it remains unclear why Maguire was also not included in the squad that jetted to France despite enjoying a resurgence during United’s dramatic late 4-1 win over Newcastle at the weekend.
