Manchester United legend Japp Stam has expressed great hopes that Odion Ighalo will surprise many at the club.
The former Super Eagles player joined United from Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua on loan till the end of the season.
Ighalo had his debut for the club during their 2-0 win against Chelsea. He also featured in the second half of the club’s in a 1-1 draw against Club Brugge in the Europa League last night.
“I hope he’s going to surprise people. He played for Watford for quite a while and went to China and he scores goals,” Stam told 888Sport, as quoted by the Express.
“It might have surprised a lot of people that he went to United but they needed a striker and one with pace and physique who can score goals and he is proven.
“The only thing is it’s very different playing for United than smaller teams in the league but he’s got better players around him who can help him out. We saw that against Chelsea.
“Hopefully he is going to do well for the club and himself. Hopefully, he performs.”
