Manchester United striker Odion Ighalo says he "doesn't care what anybody says" about his move to Old Trafford in the January transfer window.


The Nigeria international expressed his delight after his brace helped the Red Devils secure a 3-0 win over Derby County and a spot in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.



"I am happy to be around this great team, great lads and great manager, I am happy and we are working hard," Ighalo told BBC Sport.


"We know we need to win the game to go through to do important things this season and end the season well. The start was not the best we can do but after 20-25 minutes we got into the game.


"I used my strength and I am happy the ball went in. For the second, they blocked it then there is nothing I can do apart from shoot.


"I had another shot but did not connect well but the most important thing is that we won.


"We want to keep the momentum going and make sure we do great this season."




While speaking to BT Sport, he said: "I am happy. I want to congratulate the team for a hard fought game.


"As long as my team-mates believe in me, the boss believes in me and the fans believe in me, just have to keep going. I don't care what anyone says."


United’s progress into the next round of the FA Cup means that all eight remaining sides are from the top flight for the first time since the 2005-06 season.
