Man Utd fans claim Solskjaer is turning them into ‘Cardiff 2.0’ as they slam Ighalo loan transfer – The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED fans claimed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is turning the club into "Cardiff 2.0" after the shock signing of Odion Ighalo.

The Nigerian striker, 30, made his temporary switch to Old Trafford on Deadline Day as the United gaffer scrambled to get a striker in.

He joined on an initial six-month loan deal for £3million from Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua, with United paying a third of his eye-watering £300,000-a-week wages.

But with the club hoping to get themselves back into the Champions League and compete with rivals Manchester City and Liverpool, a section of fans were left furious that they turned to the former Watford man who was reportedly rejected by Aston Villa 24 hours earlier.

Solskjaer was unable to keep Cardiff City up in 2014 and lost 16 of his 30 games in charge in South Wales.

And some are worried things will take a turn for the worse with Ighalo hoping to replace the goals lost since Romelu Lukaku was sold and Marcus Rashford got injured.
