Manchester United assistant coach Kieran McKenna says Odion Ighalo has shown love and true scoring ability.

“Odion has come in and, you know, it’s been well-publicized, his passion and love for the club and that’s endeared him to a lot of people straight off the bat, but also he’s a proven goalscorer and he gives something a little bit different and adds good experience to our forward line,” said Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s number two to the club’s website.
McKenna also went on to add that Ighalo and the likes of Burno Fernandez couldn't have ensured a successful arrival without the support from the dressing room.
“I think, traditionally, it’s very hard for boys to come into a club and hit the ground running, so I don’t think it’s a case that those two have been able to do it by themselves,” he added.
“I think it’s testament to the group, to the spirit, to the work that’s gone on with the staff behind the scenes as well to have a good structure and good set-up in place that if they bring the right players in, like those two, it helps them to hit the ground running and show their best form pretty quickly.”
