Manchester United fans have reacted to the news that academy player Max Taylor has been called up to the first-team squad for the first time after his chemotherapy treatment.
The 19-year-old defender underwent cancer treatment as doctors discovered the youngster had testicular cancer last season and was given the all-clear in September.
Manager Old Gunnar Solskjaer allowed Taylor to be a part of the squad as they travel to Kazakhstan to face Astana in the Europa League.
