A select round-up of morning news relating to Manchester United...
He may not have got on the score-sheet in Manchester United’s 4-0 victory over Norwich City last night, but there was little doubting the star of the show.
Another outstanding performance from Adnan Januzaj highlighted just what a special talent David Moyes has at his disposal. And speaking after the match, the manager’s assistant Steve Round reaffirmed the club’s belief that the Belgian can play practically anywhere across the front line.
Speaking to the Manchester Evening News after the League Cup victory, Round said of Januzaj, “We see him as a seven, 10, 11. He can play any of those three.
“You ask our reserve coach and he’d say a number 9. He played there last season. We are trying to give him as much experience as he can and play him in as many positions. Adnan is going from strength to strength.”
Much has been said of the Belgian teenager but there is little doubt United have far more than another Federico Macheda on their hands. Januzaj is the real deal.
With a reported 115,547 copies sold in its first few days on sale, Ferguson has outsold the previous record holder Delia Smith by over three-and-a-half thousand.
