Fergie happy with lat­est young crop

Manchester Evening News - - UNITED - By RICHARD FAY

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.”
