Odion Ighalo regrets not taking chance for Manchester United

One of the Manchester United key player, Odion Ighalo, said, that regretted not taking his chance to score for Manchester United on his debut.

Meanwhile, Ighalo made a shock move to Manchester United on deadline day of the January transfer window and was included in their next matchday squad two weeks later.

This year United traveled down to Chelsea for a crucial encounter at Stamford Bridge, taking the lead through Anthony Martial before Harry Maguire headed in a second goal after half-time to give them a two-goal lead.

Ighalo was brought on for his debut in stoppage time of the match and almost made an immediate impact when he got the ball through on goal.

The 30-year-old thought he was about to net his dream debut goal but wasted a glorious opportunity when Chelsea keeper Willy Caballero denied him with an outstretched foot.

Ighalo has still managed an impressive return of four goals in eight appearances this season, but he admits he still rues the wasted chance on his debut.

“I was not that angry but I was thinking all through in the bus on the way to the airport that this would have been great scoring against a big team like Chelsea in my debut game for Manchester United,” Ighalo told Nana Aba Anamoah via Instagram Live.”I didn’t like that to get into me too much because there are more games to play, I thought about it a bit and look forward.”
