Manchester United’s new boy Odion Ighalo has been set a challenge to score 15 goals this season by fans after giving his first interview at the club.
The forward has joined from Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua on loan until the end of the season.
Ighalo’s deal was secured on transfer deadline day, leaving pundits stunned.
But the 30-year-old has revealed it is a dream come true in his first interview as a United player.
Speaking on the club’s official Twitter channel, he said: “I never thought this would happen but dreams do come true.
“I’m very happy to be here and it’s going to be a big challenge for me in my career.”
And the United faithful were delighted to see the Nigerian in United kit.
“Wish him all the best,” one supporter said.
Another commented: “You can’t not love him.”
While a third set him a challenge.
“He’s got to score 15 goals for United,” they said.
And a fourth added: “I reckon 10+ goals this season.”
A fifth even suggested they would start coming soon, with: “Ighalo to score two goals vs Chelsea.”
With a sixth simply saying: “20 goals incoming.”
The Nigerian went on to reveal where his dream of playing for United came from.
“Back at home in Nigeria, we would watch the Premier League on TV,” Ighalo added.
“I saw the likes of Andy Cole play.
“And people supported Man United back then in Nigeria a lot.
“So I developed a love of the club because all my siblings were Man United fans.
“I watched the game back home a lot.”
Ighalo even sent a message to his Instagram followers on Tuesday morning as he shared a snap of his arrival with the song “Hallelujah”.
