Mazzarri: Ighalo Going Nowhere, He’ll Start Vs Burton

 

By Johnny Edward:

 

Watford boss Walter Mazzarri has played down talks of Nigeria striker Odion Ighalo moving to China during this January transfer window, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.

 

Ighalo has failed to reproduce last season's form this term, even getting dropped for important games as Watford struggle.

 

"I repeat that I will speak only of the players with us in this moment. I don’t want to speak or hear about other teams wanting one of our players," Mazzari stated in his pre-match conference on Thursday ahead of Saturday's FA Cup clash with Burton.

 

"Ighalo is one of the players that will play tomorrow and I’m pretty sure he will do a very good game."

 

Ighalo, who scored 15 league goals last season, will make his seventh appearance in the English FA Cup if he gets to feature against Burton.

 

He has also gone 12 games without scoring a goal in the English Premier League this season.

 

"If they are with us in this moment I want them concentrated and ready," Mazzarri added.

 

Ighalo who turned down a move to China with Shanghai Shenhua last summer has seen his scoring form drop having scored twice in 18 games in all competitions
