Manchester United starlet Januzaj set for superstardom

Published Add your comment

Manchester United teenager Adnan Januzaj is destined to become a superstar in the game, according to Steve Bruce, so long as the Belgian midfielder is able to stay grounded - something the Hull manager expects will happen at Old Trafford.

While this season has been one to forget for Manchester United on the whole, one significant positive to take has been the emergence of Januzaj. David Moyes, much derided for his brief tenure, took the decision to blood the 19-year-old, and he has performed to distinction.

Januzaj scored twice on his second Premier League appearance for Manchester United and quickly earned himself a lucrative new long-term contract with the club. He now pockets more than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo did at the same age - £30,000-a-week.

While the goals may have dried up somewhat - as they inevitably would - Januzaj has continued to impress with his cultured and confident displays, with the youngster making a total of 34 appearances over the course of the campaign for Manchester United.

And Bruce, a former Manchester United captain, has seen enough from the latest young star off the conveyor belt to be convinced Januzaj will continue his rapid rise next season.

"We see the young players they've got today, Januzaj in particular, that kid’s going to be a superstar isn't he?" Bruce told reporters.

"If he keeps his feet on the ground, which I'm sure they will do here, then he's got everything the boy."
