Ighalo Named In Manchester United’s Europa League Squad

 

Manchester United have added their three January signings to their Europa League squad for the knockout stages of the competition – including Odion Ighalo and Bruno Fernandes.

Fernandes signed from Sporting in January, and is eligible to represent United despite having played in all of his former club’s group stage matches in the Europa League.

UEFA dropped the rule preventing players from only representing one club per season in European competition in 2018.

United had to submit their desired squad changes by 24:00 CET on Monday, February 3, where they could add up to three new players.
