Ighalo is still with us, says Watford coach

By Femi Adefioye, Lagos
The Manager of Premier League club, Watford, Mr. Walter Mazzarri has insisted that Super Eagles forward, Odion Ighalo remains one of his players.
The clarification came despite rumours he may now take the big cash from China, adding the Nigeria striker will as a result be involved in Saturday’s FA Cup tie against Burton Albion.
Speculations are rife that Ighalo is now set to reignite a big-money move to China after he has twice rejected such an overture.
However, Mazzarri has maintained he will not be part of the rumours by insisting the Nigeria striker remains a Watford player.
“Ighalo will play for us against Burton Albion. I only talk on players who are with us,” declared the Italian coach.
The 27-year-old Ighalo has managed only a goal in 17 appearances in the Premier League this season after he netted 15 goals last term.
