Ighalo picks better player between Van Nistelrooy, Persie

Manchester United striker, Odion Ighalo, has chosen who is a better player between former Red Devils stars, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Robin van Persie.

Ighalo, who won Man United’s March Goal-of-the-Month Award, said he would instead prefer to partner with Van Nistelrooy than Van Persie.

According to the 30-year-old, Van Nistelrooy was a goalscorer and a positional striker like him that could run between defenders with space.

When asked who he would pick between Van Nistelrooy and Van Persie, Ighalo told Periscope live with Juliet Bawuah: “I would gladly pick Van Nistelrooy.

“Van Nistelrooy is a goalscorer. He does not show skills, and he does not try to dribble and all that.

“He is a position striker, like me.

“A striker who can run between defenders and have space.

“That is the kind of striker I learn from. Don’t get me wrong. Van Persie is a good player.”

Van Nistelrooy joined Manchester United from PSV Eindhoven in 2001.
