'I don’t see him starting many games': Paul Scholes rates Odion Ighalo signing
- The 30-year-old joined the Red Devils on a five-month loan deal from Shanghai Shenhua on the transfer deadline day.
- The United legend has questioned the decision to sign a player from China.
- Ighalo has a tough task of proving himself worth the shirt, insists Scholes.
“I don’t think he’s a signing for the long term. I think his scoring record in China is very good but is it that credible? I don’t know, he told BBC Radio 5 live.
“He is an out-and-out centre forward, I don’t think United have an out-and-out centre forward. He’ll play with his back to goal and he might bring players into play.
“It’s good to have an extra body, but when you’re United you want an extra body with quality and he’s got that to prove. He’ll bring something different. I don’t see him starting many games.”
