Ighalo scored a fine solo effort in United's big win over LASK in the Europa League, however the future of the tournament is now up in the air due to the coronavirus outbreak.
He will have to raise his game in training so as to convince Ole Solskjaer who is now enjoying the services of new player Bruno Fernandes.
"Maybe I'm doing a disservice to him, I don't know".
Earlier in the season Bayern sacked Kovac, who had failed to get the players or fans on side during his time at the Allianz Arena. Let's hope he continues improving and reaches his best soon.
That goal, plus an assist, not to mention an overall blinder of a performance earned him Man of the Match honours, his second in three starts.
The Daily Mirror has now named De Gea and Pogba as two of the players that could be shown the door at United.
The ex-Watford and Granada man announced his retirement from worldwide football after winning the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations Golden Boot.
Former Chelsea striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink was one: "He must be the luckiest man!"
However, he has impressed so far, and boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to retain his services for next season.
With just 8 appearances, Ighalo is proving more than a replacement for injured Marcus Rashford as he has bagged four goals in three games that he began as a starter.
"I am so respectful of Pep and what he's won and what he did for football but at that moment, he didn't respect me and he didn't deserve my respect".
The Nigerian scored the first goal of a 5-0 thrashing in Austria, brilliantly juggling the ball after Bruno Fernandes' pass and drilling in off the underside of the crossbar from the edge of the area.
Solkjaer was more expansive: "He is very good back to goal, you can play up to him". He is a great link player. All them touches were high quality but he had to make them to create the space for himself. "No-one would have saved that one so anyone would be proud of that finish".
