Despite all the things so clearly wrong with the Louis van Gaal era at Manchester United, the Dutchman is doing something crucial.
Perhaps, it’s why he’s still in the job.
The Red Devils have a proud history of blooding burgeoning talents into the first-team and turning them into house hold names.
The Busby Babes. The Class of 92. Federico Macheda. Well, not everyone’s a hit obviously.
Granted, van Gaal has had little option but to turn to the youngsters in his ranks due to the injury crisis he has had to endure, though there is still an element of braveness.
We’ve seen the likes of Calum Borthwick-Jackson, Marcus Rashford and Timothy Fosu-Mensah impress, though the buck does not stop there.
As ever with the United academy, they boast some true top quality.
