Ighalo reacts to Matic telling Romelu Lukaku to ‘shut up’

first_img And he’s previously revealed that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s decision to play him on the wing prompted him into departing for the San Siro. “It was after the game against West Ham at home, Solskjaer decided to put me on the right wing, very wide,” he said. “Once I learned that Solskjaer planned to put me on the wing, then I knew my time at Manchester United was over. “The experience in Manchester made me head stronger because not everything went as I had expected. “I didn’t win what I was hoping for, my performance was not entirely positive and I didn’t even feel 100 per cent wanted. “Not so much from the technical staff or from my team-mates, but from the people around. “So after the match against Chelsea, on April 28, the coach called me for a meeting and I told him what I thought and that I wanted to leave. “He read in my face that I didn’t want to stay any longer and he replied that he didn’t want to hold anyone against it. “He understood my point of view and assured me that he would do everything possible to satisfy me. He earned my respect and, until I left Manchester, there was no problem with him.
