I just want to get started and get playing and start helping the team to do well.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Odion Ighalo  has confessed that he was overwhelmed with excitement and inspired by the way football fans in Nigeria reacted to  his move to Manchester United. Ighalo’s loan from Shanghai Shenhua has been met with joy in his home country of Nigeria, however, with supporters switching their allegiances so they can support him when he plays for his boyhood club. “It was crazy because, all over the news for the last few days, is about my deal to Man United,” Ighalo said, when asked about the reaction from his family and friends in Nigeria. “Even the street I grew up on, they are doing parties, celebrating Ighalo signing for United. They sent me the video, I was just laughing and happy, because many of them are supporting Man United and some of them are supporting some other teams in the Premier League. “But they said, because of me, they are moving to United, because they have a very big fan-base in Nigeria. So I am happy about all this and they are rooting for United from now on.” Ighalo becomes the first Nigerian player to ply their trade for United and it’s safe to say he’s delighted as he prepares to make his debut against Chelsea next week. “I’m really proud,” Ighalo said. “I’m happy because people keep sending me messages, I know that this is very big, you’re going to be the first Nigerian to play for United, it’s a good record for you in your career, I know that. First Nigerian in Manchester United. Chelsea fan’s can drag me all they want, but I’ll be supporting Man United whenever @ighalojude is playing even if it’s against my club Chelsea… Lampard and his toddler’s are not ready. #MUNWOL https://t.co/q9e1YWojpf pic.twitter.com/Exrnf6oRui— Obong Ekpe (@Ody_johnson) February 1, 2020 Promoted ContentTraditional Wedding Outfits In Different CountriesDeepika Padukone’s Most Iconic LooksWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?Couples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable WayThe Models Of Paintings Whom The Artists Were Madly In Love With6 Extreme Facts About HurricanesEver Thought Of Sleeping Next To Celebs?

PSG Banks on Paris Crowd to Upstage Real Madrid

first_imgParis St Germain are hoping their Parc des Princes crowd will help them overturn a 3-1 deficit in their Champions League last-16 return leg against Real Madrid as they try to cope without the injured Neymar.The talismanic Brazilian forward was ruled out of the game tonight after undergoing foot surgery, but PSG coach Unai Emery is confident the home fans will play a key role.“You play a game with your head and your heart. On Tuesday (tonight), the heart will be the most important thing,” Emery told a news conference yesterday. “And we will be playing with 12 players tonight because we will have the backing of the crowd.”PSG has lost its last five return legs in the Champions League, notably going out in the last 16 last season when it slumped to a 6-1 loss at Barcelona after beating the Spanish side 4-0 in Paris.“Our team, even without Neymar, is able to beat the best Real Madrid team,” said Emery.“With Neymar, PSG is stronger, but we are still strong without him,” fullback, Dani Alves said.“There are two options: either we sit and cry, or we stand on our feet and fight.”If the Paris team is going to knock out the defending champions, PSG will need to be more focused than during the first leg, when it conceded two goals in the last 10 minutes.“In the first leg we played better, had the best opportunities. But this time we need to do that for 90 minutes, not just 80,” Alves said.TODAY PSG Vs Real Madrid Liverpool Vs FC Porto TOMORROW Man City Vs FC Basel Tottenham Vs JuventusShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
