Former Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo, has been named Al Shabab Player of the Month for May.

Ighalo put up excellent displays for the White Lion during the month under review.

The 31-year-old netted six goals in five outings with Carlos Inarejos’ men winning just three games.

Ighalo also bagged a brace as the Riyadh-based team ended their 2020-21 Saudi Professional League season with a 3-0 victory over Al Wehda on Sunday.

That result saw Al Shabab finish second on the Pro League table, four points behind winners Al Hilal.

Also, that earned them an automatic spot for next season’s AFC Champions League.

Although he joined Inarejos’s side in the middle of the season after completing his loan spell at Manchester United, Ighalo ended his first league season in the Middle East as the joint-second top-scorer for Al Shabab – tied on nine goals with Portugal’s Fabio Martins.
