“I would have to let someone else be the judge of that but if I was to describe it in one word it would be ‘natural’.”


Who is your current favourite first-team player or someone from the team you look up to?

“My current favourite first-team player would have to be Anthony Martial. He is young and has proven on a number of occasions why he deserves to be in the first eleven.”


In 3-5 years time would you prefer to be a fringe player among the bench, at United or starting in the first team at a championship club?

“If I carry on developing and working hard, in 3-5 years time I see myself in the first team for Man United, that is my only focus.”

One thing for sure is that the modest,  youngster will definitely catch the eye, as he makes his way, up through the ranks of Manchester United’s famed academy With the correct attitude and hard work, it is possible he can make it all the way to the top.
