Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has spoken out on Odion Ighalo, who joined the Red Devils on loan from Shanghai Greenland Shenhua during January transfer window.

Ighalo has made 5 appearances for Manchester United so far during this season with having scored one goal.

“He’s here on merit,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports. “He’s here because he’s a goal scorer and he’s a different type of a striker for us.

“Of course we might get to the summer and ‘yeah we want to extend this’ – who knows?

“He’s come in as a breath of fresh air and he’s had chances – in his five minutes against Chelsea he had a great chance.

“Against Brugge, he scored. Against Watford, he had a great chance. Against Everton, he’s there, he had a chance but it was a very good save.

“He doesn’t miss the target very often. So it’s about having that for Anthony [Martial], Marcus [Rashford] and Mason [Greenwood] to learn.

“That’s where the sharks are swimming. It’s comfortable outside the box where you can have a few shots, but it’s in there where it might be a bit tougher and you might get hurt but that’s where you get your goals.”
