Odion Ighalo has revealed that former Manchester United strikers Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole were his heroes as a youngster.
Ighalo, a boyhood United supporter, made a surprise switch to join the club on loan from Shanghai Shenhua in January, and says that studying footage of Yorke and Cole helped him to earn his move to Old Trafford.
Ighalo told United’s official website: ‘Well, I had a lot of football heroes. When I started supporting Man United, Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole were my heroes growing up. And some Nigerian players as well like Jay-Jay Okocha and Nwankwo Kanu.
‘They are great players, they were my heroes growing up and I watched them on TV. It is a great privilege for me to play at Man United, where great players like Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole have played.’
