Odion Ighalo has hailed the quality of his teammate Anthony Martial in Manchester United’s training sessions, adding that he can often make difficult things look easy.
Martial was named as one of the two players Ighalo has been most impressed by since his January loan arrival from Shanghai Shenhua, with fellow new signing Bruno Fernandes the other.
The Frenchman has often faced criticism at United over his performances, but Ighalo is in no doubt over his value to the club.
“Anthony, since I came, he’s been scoring goals and doing so well, fighting a lot. He is a great player, he has great technique,” said Ighalo during a video chat with the United official website.

“He can do anything with the ball and he’s been doing fantastically well. I just hope he keeps going and scoring more goals and we end the season very well.
“Watching it from outside it’s different. You only watch games every weekend and see how skilful he is.
“But I train with this guy every day, you understand? Every blessed day I train with him, and it’s incredible what he does in training, do you understand? He does it so easy, you know?
