Ighalo raring to help Red Devils 'go higher'

Sports | REUTERS 4 Jun 2020

Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo hopes to lift Manchester United "higher and higher" after extending a loan deal at the English Premier League club from Shanghai Shenhua until the end of January 2021.

Ighalo, whose initial loan spell from the Chinese Super League side was to end on May 31, scored four goals in eight games for United before football halted due to Covid-19.

"I'm buzzing and ready to go," he said. "Now I've extended my loan [I] just want to work hard and enjoy it, support the team and do whatever I can to make us go higher and higher.

"I can't wait for the league to start again. We're working hard, and I believe we're going to do great."

United have nine games to play in the league and are fifth on 45 points, three behind Chelsea, with the campaign to resume on June 17. And they have all but sealed progress to the Europa League quarter-finals.
