Man Utd blasted by Okpara over Ighalo snub

Former Nigeria and PSG defender Godwin Okpara is angry with the way Odion Ighalo has been ignored at Manchester United this season.

Okpara is upset seeing United sign Edinson Cavani with Ighalo available.

"Ighalo came into the club at a very difficult time and was able to help the team get the needed goals in matches he was invited to play," Okpara said.

“A foreigner, European or a Brazilian won't be treated the way he's currently being treated."

Ighalo remains on-loan at United from Shanghai Shenhua.
