Mark Bosnich has claimed Odion Ighalo could have the same impact as Eric Cantona.
Yes, we are not joking.
“This was an emergency signing,” the former United goalkeeper said on 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.
“I think they can, there’s no doubt about that,” he added when asked if United can finish top four.
“Six points at this stage of the season for me is still nothing.
“The big question of them not scoring goals is the way that they’re playing.
“People would have a lot more confidence if they had been watching performances and saying okay this team is actually going somewhere.
“I do believe that they are. Whether or not they’ll be able creep into that top four at the end of the season is a different question entirely.
“There’s a still a chance, regardless of what anyone says they’re still in the mix.”
