Former Nigeria international Odion Ighalo has explained what makes him different from Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.

The 31-year-old striker, who is loan at Manchester United from Chinese club Shanghai Greenland Shenhua, is known to be a traditional center forward.

Ighalo feels that his playing style is different from that of his United teammates Martial and Rashford, who are mobile strikers.

“Anthony Martial is very skillful. He’s a direct striker. He likes to play with the ball at his feet,” Ighalo said on All Nigeria Soccer.

“Rashy [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.”

Ighalo, who is yet to start an English Premier League match for United, has impressed in cup competitions having netted five goals in five starts.

“So it’s good to have different types of a striker in order to accomplish what you want,” he added.

“I think I’ve gained more experience now and I push my game a little bit more than when I was at Watford.

“I think I’m even stronger now than I was then and have a bit more fighting ability to give, plus I have the experience to do what it takes on the field to score goals and to help the team. I feel I have improved from then to now.”

Ighalo will be looking to inspire United to a win when they face AFC Bournemouth in a Premier League match on Saturday, July 04. (All Nigeria Soccer)
