Ighalo warns Manchester United about Rooney ahead of FA Cup clash


Manchester United striker, Odion Ighalo has warned the club about Wayne Rooney ahead of their FA Cup clash with Derby County.

The game which holds on Thursday will see Rooney face his former club while wearing the shirt of Derby County which he now plays for and also coaches.

“Wayne Rooney is always an idol, like many players at Man United,” Ighalo told Man United’s official website.

“He is a good guy and a fighter on the pitch, he fights until the end, from the start until the finish.

“He is somebody I have seen that never gives up in the game, and he’s a good goalscorer.

“A little chance, a small space, he is going to score. He can shoot from outside, and he can score in the box, he can score from anywhere.

“He is a great player. Good techniques, he has a good shot, good runs and, when Derby County have Wayne Rooney in their team, it gives them more confidence because he has done a lot in football and in England.”
