ALL THE GOALS: ANDY COLE

By now, most United fans will already know that Odion was a big fan of Coley when he was growing up in Nigeria – and he wants to relive his childhood years by watching every goal our former striker scored for the Reds.

Ighalo has also revealed which of Cole’s 121 goals for the club were his favourites: “I remember in 1999 at Old Trafford, against Tottenham,” he said. “I can’t remember who gave him the pass [Gary Neville], but he just controlled the ball and lobbed it past the goalkeeper. It was fantastic control; a good pass and a good lob as well.”

However, his favourite was Coley’s memorable 1998 strike in the Nou Camp, against Barcelona, when our former no.9 combined expertly with strike-partner Dwight Yorke.

“It’s like they’d already spoken and said they were going to do that in a game. But the ball just came, he [Cole] opened his leg, one touch from Yorke and Cole controlled the ball straight away, and then, boom: goal. Their combination play was unbelievable and Dwight Yorke was also a great goalscorer. They did so well for United.”
