Ighalo says he's learning from Ibrahimovic ahead Manchester United clash

Super Eagles forward Odion Ighalo claims he is learning from Manchester United forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic ahead of their first ever meeting on Sunday.

The 27-year-old Nigerian grabbed his first goal in the 2016/17 premier league season last weekend as he helped the Hornets to a comprehensive 4-2 away win against West Ham United.

However, it will be different this weekend as he prepares to face a club he once confessed are his dream team and has the presence of a player he admires.

“He is a great striker. He is someone I look up to. I’m learning a lot from him. He is strong, bold and confident and scores a lot of goals. It’s going to be difficult for our defence playing against him,” he told beIN Sports.

“Manchester United is a big team, they have a good squad and a fantastic team so it’s going to be a tough game but in football anything can happen... I think we have a chance of getting a point or winning the game.”
