Man United starlet James Wilson talks about next season’s hopes

Manchester United 3

The teenage striker hit two goals on his debut this week and has admitted that he hopes to get more playing time at Old Trafford.

James Wilson has been the name on Manchester United fans’ lips after the young striker netted two goals on his debut against Hull this week.

The 18-year-old youth product has admitted that he hopes to get the opportunity to play more often and is confident he can handle the pressure of playing up front for the Red Devils.

"It was a great feeling and you can't compare it to anything else,” The Daily Star quote him as saying.

"The first goal was just sheer euphoria and then the second was a great experience. The ground is a lot different without 75,000 people, but just to play here even in front of a small crowd for the U21s is still a great experience. With all the fans here against Hull it was even better.

"I feel like I can deal with the physicality and pace of the game. I just need to try to get as many games as possible under my belt for the experience.

"If you're getting on in the club, you have to be progressing so obviously scoring for every age group is a good sign. I've got where I am now but I have to kick on."

Wilson will have competition for a place in the United starting XI, with the likes of Robin van Persie, Danny Welbeck, Javier Hernandez and Wayne Rooney also in contention.

Whoever is named United’s new manager will have a major bearing on the young star’s chances of playing for the Old Trafford side.
