Manchester United teenager Aidan Barlow scored a stunning goal against Newcastle U-16s after bamboozling a defender with a rainbow flick and then slotting the ball into the net.
Although Barlow is too young to even think about playing for United’s first team, players like will be encouraged by how United’s youth players have pushed their way up to the first team. Van Gaal for all his failures at Manchester United should be given credit for giving chances to many youngster although most of them were forced upon him due to the injury crisis. Players like Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard,etc will be the backbone of Manchester United for many years to come. Van Gaal may not stay at Old Trafford for much longer but he certainly will leave his mark in one way or the other. The rise of youngsters like Rashford and Fosu-Mensah have increased the attractiveness of Manchester United for many youngsters around Europe.
