Watford striker Odion Ighalo was given a hero's welcome by former club Granada as he was a special guest for their clash against Real Madrid on Sunday evening. Ighalo was presented on the pitch at the Los Carmenes stadium ahead of kick-off prior to their 2-1 La Liga defeat by Real.
The 26-year-old's appearance was greeted with a rousing reception from the home supporters - who still remains a clear fan favourite despite his departure.
