Our Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern are always excited about the next wave of youth academy prospects coming through the Old Trafford ranks.
Red Devils current man in charge, Jose Mourinho will not be looking to break the long 80-year-old record of having a United youth academy player named in the matchday squad but keep the streak going. Despite many of our punters believing the hype surrounding Mourinho over his reputation of not giving youth a chance after his appointment at Old Trafford, he seems to be fully invested in the Red Devils’ historic youth policy.
Our barman likes the idea of, if a United youth graduate makes the step up to the first team, they’ll know it’s not just for a short, meaningless stint. Mourinho’s personal policy is, if an academy player is to play for the first team, he’s in the first team’s plans, not just there to create numbers and statistics.
