Marc Wilmots says Manchester United player Adnan Januzaj must find a club where he can play regularly

Old Trafford 3

The future of a Manchester United youngster has been discussed by his national manager.

In comments published by, the coach of the Belgian national team Marc Wilmots has been speaking about Manchester United youngster Adnan Januzaj.

The winger-cum-play-maker had a wonderful debut campaign at Old Trafford under former manager David Moyes, but he has been used far more sparingly since Louis van Gaal took charge.

The 20-year-old started the campaign in United’s first-team and was used regularly up until November, but he then played just 27 minutes in the club’s next 10 Premier League matches.

Another spell in the side followed but since mid-March he has featured just once – as a late substitute against Chelsea – and with so many quality attacking players at United it remains to be seen if he will get more chances next season.

Januzaj’s situation has prompted Wilmots to say, “Lately Januzaj (has been) given few opportunities at Manchester United. Januzaj must now find a team where he can play games.”

Given his talent and the fact that he recently signed a new long-term deal at the club, any move is more likely to be on loan than in a permanent deal. But with Memphis Depay recently signed and more players set to arrive this summer, the prodigious youngster will have to fight harder than ever to get noticed at Old Trafford.
