Ighalo has now scored three goals in seven appearances for the Red Devils. Kanu in an interview with Goal urged the in-form striker to reconsider his decision to end international duties.

“Nigeria needs every good player no matter where they are playing or their age. “If he performs in Manchester United, we will ask him to come back and tell him to forget what he said.

“This is football and we have to watch and see how the situation would unfold. Not just Ighalo, Nigeria need whoever is in form,” he said.
