Manchester United starlet nets acrobatic wondergoal

Published 1 Comments

With Manchester United evidently searching for a creative spark to re-ignite their stuttering Premier League season, one of their midfield loanees was busy making headlines this weekend with a spectacular finish.

Powell, who joined the Red Devils in July 2012 following a hugely impressive start to his career with Crewe Alexandra, is currently on loan at Championship outfit Wigan Athletic and helped get new manager Uwe Rosler's Latics career off to a good start with a quite breathtaking finish on Sunday.

In a thrilling 3-2 win over Dougie Freedman's Bolton Wanderers at the DW Stadium, the 19-year-old netted the hosts' second goal in the 24th minute, rising majestically to acrobatically volley home with his right foot after a Chris McCann shot looped up off a defender.

Unsurprisingly rumours surfaced last night that Manchester United boss David Moyes, who will surely be hoping the likes of Danny Welbeck and Tom Cleverley can lighten the dark mood at Old Trafford following their impressive displays in the 3-0 mauling of Aston Villa on Sunday, is looking to recall Powell from his loan spell in order to re-distribute him to a Premier League club.
