Newly signed Manchester United player, Jadon Sancho, has said he was excited to wear jersey number 25 shirt recently donned by Nigeria’s Odion Ighalo at the club.
Manchester United Friday officially announced the signing of England international to boost their Premier League campaign this season.
Sancho, who is represented by a Nigerian agent Emeka Obasi, has put pen to paper a deal that will keep him at Old Trafford until June 2026, with the option for an additional year.
Sancho will become the tenth player to wear the number 25 since the Premier League introduced squad numbers at the start of the 1993-1994 season, after Ighalo, Valencia, Nick Powell, Danny Simpson, David Jones, Quinton Fortune, Jordi Cruyff, Kevin Pilkington and Gary Walsh.
The last time Ighalo wore United’s number 25 kit in a competitive fixture was in a UEFA Champions League clash against Paris Saint-Germain on December 2, 2020.
In 23 outings across all competitions for the Red Devils, the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations Golden Boot winner found the net five times.
