Position: Attacking midfielder
MUTV‘s regular feature puts United’s younger players under the spotlight…
First team played for?
A local team called Penkford United.
Signed for United…
I was seven – Mike Glennie started me off in the Under-7s and I’ve just gone on since then.
First player you idolised…
I would probably say Paul Scholes from when I was young.
Players you look up now…
Andres Iniesta and I also like Shinji Kagawa now. I just like Iniesta and the way he positions himself on the field. He’s never marked and is always in little pockets of space. It’s the same with Shinji. I like the way he plays.
What are your strengths?
My awareness of where I am on the field. I’m always looking for space.
Making my first-team debut on the tour.
Why do you love football?
I love everything about it. Just coming into training every day knowing I’m going to play football is just a great feeling.
Best friend in football…
I’d probably say Larnell Cole.
What are your ambitions?
Hopefully to stay around the first team, train with them a lot and get a shot at the Capital One Cup.
