Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been criticised for barely playing Odion Ighalo after the lockdown period. The Nigeria international signed for the club on loan in the January transfer window. And despite impressing at Old Trafford, he found himself on the fringes of the action once the Premier League resumed in June.

Prior to the lockdown, Ighalo had impressed for United, scoring four goals from eight matches.

He managed just one more goal afterwards, however, and found himself having to make do with a role on the bench throughout most matches.

And, now, former Nigeria forward Victor Ezeji has hit out at Solskjaer for his handling of Ighalo – expressing a belief that his compatriot should have been given more game time.

“Every coach believes in his starting XI and to be very fair to Ighalo, the Covid situation did not help him, because if not for Covid, [Marcus] Rashford would still have been out until the end of the season,” Ezeji told Goal.
