Odion Ighalo has said he was not treated fairly during his time at Manchester United under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Ighalo joined the EPL side in January 2020 on a six months loan but spent most of it on the bench.
He made the move from Chinese Super League side, Shanghai Shenhua.
“There wasn’t much possibility because I wanted more playing time,” Ighalo told Sky Sports when asked if he could have extended his stay with United.
“At my age, I want to play and not just sit on the bench and not have any minutes.
“I didn’t just want to be there picking up a salary – I wanted to be involved so I said to my agent that if an offer comes in, I will look at it and see what’s best for me, which is what I did.
“After my initial loan was extended, I did not play much which was perhaps a bit unfair but as I said, I am always grateful for the opportunity.”
