Manchester United have started to integrate some of the club’s younger players into the first team throughout the course of the previous year, especially under current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The likes of Mason Greenwood, Tahith Chong, Angel Gomez and Brandon Williams have all been called up to the Norwegian’s first-team squad this season, with the latter appearing off the substitutes’ bench late on against Liverpool on Sunday afternoon.
After the success of Marcus Rashford, who was an unknown entity prior to his call-up to the first team back in 2016, but is now deemed as one of the hottest young prospects in European football and attracting interest from Barcelona – it’s clear to see the benefits of clubs placing trust in their younger players.
Chelsea’s early success this season is largely thanks to the likes of Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount – two academy graduates handed more responsibility this term – while there is evidently a much more widespread feeling among some of the Premier League’s biggest clubs that using their homegrown resources could well be the way forward.
Another gem currently playing for United’s Under-23s at the moment is 18-year-old winger Largie Ramazani, who is currently tearing it up playing for the Red Devils’ development side in Premier League 2 – scoring four goals while laying off two assists (via Transfermarkt).
Ramazani scored a beautiful free-kick for United’s second-string against Swansea City U23s last night, and unsurprisingly, fans of the club are absolutely buzzing over it:
