The analysis that has been unfair to Man United


English Premier League club Man United have been enjoying great form and this goes with the rise of a number of youngsters in the manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team.

While new recruit Bruno Fernandes is being praised alongside Paul Pogba for their fine form and contribution, the names of young lads in the team have also been blasted.

Mason Greenwood tops the list of the youngsters in the team owing to his awesome performance since the restart of the season, with many pundits singing his praise.

However, Owen Hargreaves is of the opinion that the analysis of youngsters at the Old Trafford has been unfair to Phil Foden, hailing the lad as a more interesting and special player.

According to the former Man United player, Foden is more special than any kid at Man United.

Owen Hargreaves recalls when he was at Man City for a coaching course, he stated that Foden was with the U14 and was half the size of everyone in the team but he was the best, stressing that he had to be clever to be ahead.

He added that Foden scores four to five goals in each training session.

Admitting that Foden has grown, the former Man United player rates him as the most co-ordinated player whose age shows that he is doing more than everyone.

However, he expressed delight that with these young talents, the England national team can boast of a good future, citing the likes of James Maddison, Jack and Mason Greenwood.
