Adnan Januzaj has stated that he is happy with how he has progressed during the Manchester United tour. 

The player put in a number of good performances whilst in Asia and Australasia and even managed to get on the score sheet himself.

Januzaj sparkled in United's last game against Kitchee on Monday and managed to grab a goal in the 5-2 win.

“It felt good to score a goal, it was a good cross from Alex [Buttner] and I was in the right place to put it in,” the 18-year-old told MUTV. 

“I think we all did well, we kept the ball and that is what made the difference. We scored early in the game and that is what made the difference in this game.

“I have done some good stuff (during the tour) and I hope to keep going. That is what I am going to do. I am going to work hard and try to keep doing what I am doing.”

Chris Smalling also stated his own opinion of youngsters Jesse Lingard and Januzaj, claiming that the players have taken their chance. 

Smalling also mentioned that he thinks giving the younger players in the squad a chance to play was a good idea whilst also praising the youngsters for taking their chances when they got offered a place to showcase their skills to fans and the new United manager.

“They have taken their chance,” he explained. 

“It’s good that the manager has given these young players a chance and they have really taken their chances. I think all of them have made a claim for the start of the season and they are all in with a good shout.”
