Ex- Manchester United and Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo has chosen his spell in China with Changchun Yatai as the ‘highest point’ of his career.
Ighalo made this known in an interview when he was asked about his move to the Middle East.
“Well, I will say when I signed my deal with China. It was a good contract. And I was pleased with it,” Ighalo told This Day Style when asked what the high point of his career was.
“I was bought from Watford to Changchun Yatai for £20 million and it was a huge transfer and the biggest transfer in the history of both clubs.
“I went there and played for two years. I did so well with the team. I played about 50 or 52 games with 36 goals.
“It was one of the best moments in my career life. I would also say the day I got signed to Manchester United. Nothing compares to that feeling,” he said.
Recall that Ighalo was on a year loan to Manchester United after his time with Yatai.
During his two-and-a-half-year stint in China, the 32-year-old scored 46 goals in 72 appearances in the Chinese Super League and also won the Chinese FA Cup in 2019.
