Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has praised the all-round talents of Odion Ighalo after the striker bagged his fifth goal in just four starts for the Reds in their 2-1 win over Norwich City in a quarter-final of the Emirates FA Cup on Saturday. Ighalo was one of Solskjaer 's eight changes made to the side and he carried out his mission with aplomb. Throughout the game, the Nigerian showed great awareness and patience in poking the opener home and also played a part in building up to winner Harry Maguire. "Odion (Ighalo) provides me an opportunity to rotate," Solskjaer told BBC Sport.

He is a established goal scorer and has played his part in both objectives. He's just a great individual to have in the locker room. "Ighalo knows how much we respect him in and around the dressing room, he's a goal scorer, a poacher, he 's big, we can play the ball into him, he turned up for the second and he's found him by Paul (Pogba). "He has one eye over the ball. Possibly one hand on the keeper who comes to smash him and the defender who comes to smash him, well done. In the meantime, Ighalo is delighted with the progress made by the Red Devils into the semi-finals of the Emirates FA Cup. Ighalo took the Win to social media. "Semi-finals," tweeted the international former Nigeria.
