Ighalo reveals luxury in Saudi pro league side Al-Hilal

Super Eagles and former Manchester United loanee Odion Ighalo, has revealed the luxury that could await players joining Saudi Pro League side Al-Hilal this summer, with the forward posting a video from their luxury plane.

Ighalo has played in Saudi Arabia since 2021 with the Nigerian striker first joining Al-Shabab, before moving to Al-Hilal.

He finished as the third top scorer in the division last season with 19 goals but Al-Hilal were left to settle for a third place finish in the Pro League.

And Ighalo has now given fans an insight into how the team travels to away matches by posting a video of their luxury plane.

The Boeing 747-400 plane, which costs a reported $220 million (£173m), has been chartered by the likes of Prince Alwaleed bin Talal – a Saudi billionaire – who is a big fan of the team.

The plane initially had 400 passenger seats, but these were replaced to make way for luxury items.

This includes a dining room and a golden throne, which where displayed by Ighalo and his team-mates in the video.

Ighalo could be seen in the video mouthing the word ‘wow’ after walking around the luxury plane.

The striker showed off the lounge areas of the aircraft and was also seen in the plane’s cockpit.

The 34-year-old will not be on the plane next season however after leaving Al-Hilal at the end of his contract.
