Manchester United striker Odion Ighalo says he won’t be drawn into speculation surrounding his future at his new English Premier league tea.
The former Super Eagles striker said he believes football must come secondary to health amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
Ighalo has enjoyed life at Old Trafford following his surprise loan move was completed in January but could find his time at his boyhood club cut short due to the world health pandemic.
Football world including the exciting English premier league is on lockdown following the outbreak of the devastating Coronavirus and this could see the Nigerian ’s six -month loan spell could expire before action resumes, but the ex- Nigerian international is adamant that discussing his future would be insensitive.
Asked if his contract dilemma, Ighalo told The Sun, “Talking about other things now will not only be selfish but terribly insensitive. I don’ t even think about it.
“The challenge before us now is not a football one, but a global one.
“You can ’t put football before health challenges. What matters right now is to keep safe and pray for those battling with the virus to recover fully.
“This is another reminder for us to share love in this world. Continue to show kindness to one another because a problem facing one is a problem to all .’
Ighalo added, “We are all working individually away from the training ground and staying fit at home.
“Of course I miss football, like other players and fans. But lives matter.
“Staying safe and alive is our biggest game in the world now – and we all have a role to play in it.”
