Ighalo trainer lifts lid on new Man Utd signing's 'pre-season' preparations

The January arrival could make his debut against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Monday evening if the Red Devils feel is ready to play

Manchester United striker Odion Ighalo is undergoing a demanding strength-based training regime as he continues to build his match fitness after signing for the remainder of the season.

The Nigerian joined on deadline day, but is being kept apart from the rest of the squad as they continue their warm weather training camp in Spain.

Instead, the 30-year-old is taking part in double daily fitness sessions with performance coach Wayne Richardson, who was immediately impressed with the player’s attitude.
