Lagos - Jude Odion Ighalo has told News24 he is looking forward to working with new manager, Quique Flores Sanchez at Watford ahead of the new English Premier League season.
The former Atletico Madrid coach was appointed the new Watford manager last month, replacing Slavisa Jokanovic, who won promotion with the Hornets from the Championship last season.
And the Nigeria striker says he is looking forward to a good working relationship with the Spanish manager.
“I’m really looking forward to working with him and having a good relationship,” Ighalo told News24, “I haven’t really been told much but I believe we will have a good working relationship,” the 25-year old said.
Asked if he feels bad knowing he won’t be working with the manager who won promotion with the club, the striker says he’s only concerned about playing and is ready to work with any manager.
“I really don’t have a say in that, it’s not my call. My job is to work hard and deliver for the club and I am ready to do that under any manager.
“My target now is to be ready for the new season and to score as many goals as possible. I will work with the manager the club has chosen,” he said.
