Man Utd Striker Ighalo Boast Of Playing With His Back To Goal Against Bournemouth

Ighalo Back To Goal Against Bournemouth

Ahead of Saturday’s meeting with Bournemouth, Manchester United marksman Odion Ighalo has claimed he can play with his back to goal.

The Nigerian discussed the game with United Review, the official matchday programme, as he hopes for a reunion with former Watford colleague Nathan Ake, who is the main man at the back for the Cherries.

“With strikers, we are being judged on goals,” he told United Review. “Sometimes, when you don’t score goals, you’re sad.

”As long as the team wins, that’s the most important thing but, as a striker, I would like to score in every game.

“That is what you are being judged on – goals, goals, goals.

“It’s the measure of a striker – how many goals you have scored. It is what people want to know about.

”That’s why we’re always eager to score goals and why, every time I’m on the pitch, I give my best to try to make sure I can create chances and score goals.

”But if I don’t score then, as long as we win the game, and my team-mates score, it’s okay for me.

The 31-year-old explained further: “Anthony Martial is very skilful. He’s a direct striker. He likes to play with the ball at his feet. Rashy l[Marcus Rashford] likes to run in behind.

”I think I bring different things to the strikers we have. I can play with my back to goal, I can keep the ball. I’m strong so it’s different, you know, and for the different games, we play different patterns and with different strategies.

“So it’s good to have different types of striker in order to accomplish what you want.’’
