Former Manchester United goalkeeper Mark Bosnich has backed Odion Ighalo to produce the same impact at Old Trafford as Eric Cantona.

The former super eagles striker arrived in Manchester from China on deadline-day from Shanghai Shenhua.

Ighalo, 30, who grew up as a United fan idolising Dwight Yorke and Andrew Cole, joi

And Bosnich sees no reason why Ighalo can’t replicate the success of Cantona, who enjoyed a glittering five-year spell with United after signing from Leeds in 1992.

“This was an emergency signing,” Bosnich told Sky Sports News. “I can understand a lot of people taking about a scatter gun approach, well it had to be with Marcus Rashford being out.

“The top four is still possible for Manchester United , they had to go and get somebody.

“The boy that’s come in (Ighalo) has got nothing to lose, nobody expects anything unbelievable from him but they definitely needed somebody in that position.

“You never know. A long, long time ago Manchester United signed a certain Frenchman (Eric Cantona) who no one really expected much from and he ended up propelling them to one of their most successful seasons of all time.”
