“It’s part of the history, it’s what sets us apart from other teams. Yes, we can bring world-class players in from around the world, but we want one of our own to be performing on that Old Trafford pitch, whether it’s a center forward, a winger, a defender—we need players to come through the ranks.”
It will forever be remembered in the history of Manchester United that LVG who was earlier on criticized for not having faith in youth players, gave Marcus Rashford a chance he savored. The player hasn’t stopped showing off his true values on the pitch. It is also believed that the Dutch manager could have been sacked if it wasn’t for the goals scored by Marcus that earned do-or-die victories for the team.
Ryan Giggs’ advice may be for Jose Mourinho who, although has a track record of trophies with different clubs, refused to consider youth players during his second term as Chelsea’s coach.
Jose left Ruben Loftus-Cheek to rot on the bench with great potentials as a highly rated member of England’s Under-21 team.
