Ex-Nigeria International wins Al Shabab Player of the Month award


Former Manchester United striker Odion Jude Ighalo has been named Al Shabab player of the month of May following his impressive performance for the Saudi Arabian elite division side.

The club via their official twitter handle confirmed that the former Watford striker has been voted as the Al Shabab Player of the Month for May.

The 32-year-old was at his best for the White Lion in the month of May where he scored six goals in five appearance with Carlos Inarejos’ men winning just three games.

Ighalo who had his Mum watch him for the first time in his professional career, bagged a double as the Riyadh-based team ended their 2020-21 Saudi Professional League season with a comfortable 3-0 victory over Al Wehda on Sunday.

That result saw Al Shabab finish second on the Pro League table, four points behind winners Al Hilal. Also, that earned them an automatic spot for next season’s AFC Champions League.
