With David Moyes finally taking charge of Manchester United, football fans should brace themselves for a series of changes which he'll usher in.

One such change which would alter Manchester United for the better is the way youngsters are being treated at the club.

Paul Pogba mentioned that one of the major reasons why he decided to leave Manchester United was because Sir Alex Ferguson did not give him enough opportunities to play, opting for Paul Scholes instead - who had just come out of retirement.

Even though Scholes is one of the best midfielders of his time, Pogba can be forgiven for getting frustrated at being kept on the bench season after season when his talent was unquestionable.

Today, Pogba plies his trade for Juventus where he excels, having been given enough chances to play. Last season, Nick Powell and Alexander Buttner were given limited opportunities in United's first-team, featuring only in cup competitions or when the league title was sealed.

Now with Moyes trying to sign Leighton Baines and also looking to strengthen the midfield with the likes of Kevin Strootman and Thiago Alcantara, Powell and Buttner are likely to be understudies to them for quite a while.

There are also players from United’s youth academy like Michael Keane, Scott Wootton and Adnan Januzaj who have showcased their talent time and time again over the past few seasons. Some are even touching the age of 20, yet they are not even close to breaking into the first team, yet alone cementing a starting place.

While United’s youth academy and scouting system are excellent, if they continue to give chances to accomplished faces and ignore these younger lads, there will be more Pogbas who’ll just look elsewhere for a chance to prove themselves, and United can’t afford to lose any more talent, especially not the ones they have developed and produced.
