Manchester United fans may have to wait for about a month to see their latest acquisition,Odion Ighalo, adapt fully to life at the Old Trafford.

Odion madethe shock move to the Red Devils on loan in the January transfer window, with highexpectation by Red’s fan that he will provide attacking cover following therecent injury to Marcus Rashford.

FormerWatford and Shanghai Shenhua manager Quique Sanchez Flores believes said itwill take the former Nigeria top striker, who has handed the No. 25 jersey,tohit top form.

Flores hashad two spells in charge at Vicarage Road, and he worked with Ighalo in hisfirst stint.

The coach insistssome patience will be required to enable Ighalo adapt things in his new clubfollowing temporary switch from Shanghai Shenhua.

“Mainly,the problem is how they train in China. It is not the same as in England. Is hereally ready for first-team matches in the Premier League because the physicaldifference is so big? He probably needs one month to recover the full rhythm.

“Thegood thing is he knows his body well, works hard on injury prevention, and heis always working after training. In China, he gave exactly the same effort andquality as he gave me four years ago. We had the feeling in China that he couldrecover a high level with any team in Europe.”

On Tuesday,the Red Devils confirmed their new signing will wear the No. 25 jersey.
