–Former Nigeria U-23 Eagles star earns praises
Watford Coach Slavisa Jokanovic has expressed happiness at having former National U-23 Eagles star, Odion Ighalo in his team following his impressive performance for Championship side.
With 11 goals in seven games – and 14 in 14 League starts – it’s hard not to indulge in hyperbole when talking of Odion Ighalo’s form.
While praising the on-fire forward, Jokanovic was more guarded about the significance of a single player’s contributions.
“There is no memory in football – this game is already history and so is his [Odion Ighalo] part in it,” said the giant Serb.
“I repeat what I said on Saturday: Ighalo is just doing his job – he is in a good moment.
“The team won the match, not just one player. They will see his name first but behind are many others.
“Now what do we do? Go on holiday and have a break? No. We must get ready for this weekend.
“We must give focus to Saturday now. Ighalo will rest and recover, just as everyone else will.
“Watford is a squad which will win because of everyone working together on the pitch. Success cannot come from a single man.”
