Manchester United might be having a hard time in the ongoing Premier League, but, a couple of their back-ups who are currently playing for different clubs on loan are doing no harm to their reputation at all. Those two guys are Angelo Henriquez and Nick Powell.
Henriquez is playing for the La Liga club Real Zaragoza, while, Powell is showing his skills at the Championship club Wigan Athletic. Both these guys have been in fine nick recently and have contributed heavily for their respective sides.
According to the Manchester United boss David Moyes, the players who are playing on loan and are putting up good performances will definitely get their opportunities when they come back.
Talking to the reporters yesterday, Moyes said, “It’s nice to see that the guys are performing well on loan. Our back up is very strong and that’s why, we can place such talented guys on loan.”
“We want them to get more playing time and get prepared for the big games.”
Meanwhile, Manchester United has found out a new hero in the form of the 18 years old Belgian winger Adnan Januzaj.
Januzaj started a Premier League game for the first time for United the other day against Sunderland and made his mark straight away by scoring a couple of goals.
When asked about Januzaj, Moyes said, “I had planned to give him a start a few weeks back, but, because of various reasons, I couldn’t do that. Yesterday was perfect to get him into the starting line up and what a debut he had. He was just unstoppable.”
Januzaj’s contract with United is going to finish next summer. When asked if he thinks that the teenager might be lured away by the other clubs, Moyes said, “That is not something which is bothering me at the moment. All the young players want to be a part of Manchester United.”
