Manchester United starlet nets stunning strike

Published Add your comment

Throughout a long and illustrious history, Manchester United have been renowned for nurturing youth players who have gone on to enjoy incredibly successful careers.

Perhaps the most famous example of this commitment to youngsters came under the tutelage of iconic former manager Sir Alex Ferguson. During the early 1990s, Ferguson oversaw the progression of a number of promising young talents including the likes of Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville, Paul Scholes and David Beckham.

In 17-year-old midfielder Matthew Willock, the Red Devils could well possess the next home-grown Old Trafford star.

In a comfortable 4-2 victory for United's U18 side, Willock outlined his considerable potential with an outstanding strike from outside the penalty area.

After a scrappy period of play during which the Baggies struggled to clear their lines efficiently, Willock, who was previously on the books of Premier League rivals Arsenal, took possession with confidence and proceeded to an unleash stunning curled effort that looped gorgeously into the back of the net.
