Manchester United favourite Dimitar Berbatov has been pleased with the performances of Odion Ighalo in the Red Devils shirt and admits that the striker has proved him wrong. The Nigerian was a shock loan signing from Shanghai Shenhua on deadline day in January and there were initial doubts whether he could make an impact with the club.

However, the former Watford man has managed to impress with the limited gametime on offer and he has already contributed three goals from two starts in the Cup competitions. Speaking to Betfair, Berbatov said that he is ‘really happy’ with Ighalo’s early success with the Red Devils and particularly admired the physical aspect of his game.
