London - Watford striker Odion Ighalo has hailed “intelligent guy” Quique Sanchez Flores, saying he is one of the best coaches he has worked with.

The Nigerian remained adamant to set a target for himself or the club this season.

“He is one of the best coaches I’ve worked with in terms of game plans and encouraging his players.

“He is a very intelligent guy and deserves big credit for everything we are going through now.”

Despite the temptation, Ighalo has refused to set a target for himself.

“I give God all the glory for my goals and the victory,” he said on Teamtalk.

“Last season I never set a target and this season I haven’t either. I will never set myself a target as then I put pressure on myself. I want to keep going game by game. When the team wins a game that is the most important.”
