Man Utd fans want to see more of youngster Aliou Traore in the first team

Man Utd are a club with a rich history of developing young players, but unfortunately for the Old Trafford faithful, Jose Mourinho doesn’t have quite the same reputation. Indeed, the Portuguese is, conversely, infamous for the lack of attention he places on young players, and so it will come as no real surprise that he has placed little focus on that since his arrival at the club.

To be fair to him, the emergence of Scott McTominay over the last has indicated a change in tactic from the boss, but it will be interesting to see if he keeps getting minutes come next season.

Man Utd, though, have one of the best academies in Europe in terms of producing young talent, and it’s fair to say that fans online have been getting pretty excited about one player in particularly over the last day or so.

On Wednesday, Man Utd tweeted out a video displaying young Aliou Traore. In the clip, the 17-year-old is seen dribbling from one end of the pitch to the other in effortless fashion.

Naturally, this has led to a lot of excitement online, and it’s fair to say that a lot of Man Utd fans are calling for him to get a few minutes in the first team.

Comparisons between him and Pogba have already emerged, and it’s easy to see why, given his incredible technical quality.

Take a look at what Man Utd fans online have had to say below…
