Odion Ighalo has heaped praise on his fellow Manchester United January signing after his impressive start at Old Trafford – and the former Super Eagles star has identified three qualities which set him apart from the rest.
The Nigerian believes his teammate possesses three qualities which will allow him to establish himself as one of the Premier League’s top talents.
“He is intelligent, he has foresight, he has vision,” Ighalo said. “He sees what he wants to do
“You can see the understanding between him and (Anthony) Martial, you can see the understanding between me and him, so he's a very good player. And he's not even settled down yet!
“He comes from a very different place to the Premier League. When that guy has settled down, he's going to take the Premier League by storm.”
As Ighalo warns, Fernandes’ performances for Sporting do make for worrying for Red Devils’ league rivals.
