Fergie happy with latest young crop
SIR Alex Ferguson says he is encouraged by the progress being made by United’s latest batch of youngsters.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been keen to continue Fergie’s tradition of playing youngsters since he took over at the club, with Marcus Rashford, Scott McTominay and Mason Greenwood all playing a key role in the first team.
Solskjaer has also provided opportunities for Brandon Williams, James Garner, Angel Gomes and Tahith Chong this season. And Ferguson admits he’s impressed with the work being done.
“They’re all doing well,” he said when asked about United’s current crop of youngsters.
“It’s a good set-up at United. For any young kid going there, it’s a great club to go to. And I think England are producing great young players who are representing their country and that can only be a good thing.
“Hopefully Scotland can follow that!
“The thing about young people is, if you give them an opportunity, not only do they seize it, they never let you down. They have enthusiasm to do well.
“If we go back to the young lads of ‘92, you give them an opportunity to play for Man United in front of 75,000 and they don’t want to miss that.
“And they all did very well, and they’re also very good human beings.”
