Former Manchester United forward Andy Cole believes January loan signing Odion Ighalo will be out to show that he is good enough to play for the club he grew up supporting.

Ighalo has stayed behind in Manchester working on his fitness while the squad are on a warm-weather training camp in Spain.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed Ighalo will be part of the Manchester United travelling squad for their game against Chelsea on Monday.

According to the latest report by The Times, Ighalo agreed to stay away from United’s training ground for two weeks after because of concerns over the spread of coronavirus.

Cole, who scored 121 goals for United, believes that Ighalo will bring a new dimension to his former side’s attack.

“That’s what we are hoping for”, Cole told Goal. “There are no doubts that he will do just that.” “He is a big supporter of the football club, he’s a fan. He wants to come here and do what he can for Manchester United, play to the best of his ability.”
