Submitted on Thu, 09/26/2019 - 11:13

Manchester United’s head of first-team development Nicky Butt believes the likes of Angel Gomes and Mason Greenwood have a genuine chance of securing regular gametime under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this term. The young pairing have not featured in any of the Under 23 games for the Red Devils to date and it appears quite clear that they are in the plans of Solskjaer.

In a report covered by The Manchester Evening News, Butt mentioned the names of Gomes and Greenwood when asked about the players, who could make the breakthrough from the academy, he said: "I think it's unfair to settle on one. I think Gomes could set alight this season and do really well, he's matured and got a lot stronger. Purely for the excitement and the fans I think Greenwood is going to be a real, real superstar if he keeps his feet on the ground, he's patient and he scores the goals that he can. He's both footed, he's a big, strong, powerful kid who can score goals and he's still very much a young boy who's likeable."

I think he wants to play Champions League. So, that’s unfortunate for Man United. It’s going to be difficult, a lot of them maybe have a Uefa ban, so there’s a lot that’s going on still. So I hope he makes the right decision for himself.”

I always talk about Real Madrid, a royal club, white shirts with gold. But I’m focused right now on Lyon, and then we see where I end up.”
