Episode notes

Odion Ighalo joins the UTD Podcast for the final episode of 2020. The Manchester United striker shared his incredible journey from Nigeria to Old Trafford, and what every step meant to him as a passionate fan of the club.

He told the Pod about how he would save up his dinner money to pay and watch Man Utd on TV at the weekends, his first experience with cold weather & snow in Norway, and then achieving a dream by playing at Old Trafford with Watford.

Odion then talked us through the incredible night of his dream move to Manchester United, where he was running around a hotel in China trying to find a club official who could authorise his deadline day move.

Helen, Sam and Maysie also read out your emails at the end of the episode. If you'd like to write to the only official Manchester United Podcast then e-mail [email protected]
