Anderlecht’s teenage sensation Youri Tielemans made headlines last year when he revealed his love for Manchester United.
In an interview with Voetbalkrant the Belgian said, “It’s my goal to be in the first-team this season. Are Anderlecht really my dream club? Certainly, although I also love Manchester United.”
Those comments got plenty of tongues wagging and anyone who saw the player’s goal for Belgium’s under-21 side against their Spanish counterparts on Wednesday will be hoping that love for all things United has not diminished.
Advancing from the halfway-line, the midfielder let rip with a sumptuous right-foot strike that rocketed past Spain’s goalkeeper before he had the chance to move.
Nestling into the top corner, it was the latest evidence that Tielemans has what it takes to make it at one of the top club’s in Europe.
