Adnan Januzaj isn't happy with the way he's being treated.

Adnan Januzaj is "furious" at being made to train with Manchester United U21s

Published 12 Comments

Jose Mourinho has told Adnan Januzaj that he is not part of his Manchester United plans.

That much was confirmed when the Belgian was excluded from the squad for Sunday’s Community Shield clash against Leicester City 

It leaves the 21-year-old, who came to fore in 2013, with little options but to ready himself to leave Old Trafford. He spent last season out on loan at Borussia Dortmund but it might be best for Januzaj to seek permanent residence elsewhere.

The former prodigy hasn’t taken to his demotion very well, according to a United source.

Januzaj, like Bastian Schweinsteiger, has suffered the ultimate embarrassment that a professional footballer could face; being made to train with the reserves.

But if you thought the former star of tomorrow has accepted being made to share a locker room with the current stars of tomorrow, think again.

Refusing to change with U21s

The Mirror claims Januzaj has responded by refusing to change with the reserve players. Last week, he reportedly changed for training in a toilet adjacent to the Under-21 dressing room, such is his frustration.

On other days, he doesn’t even change out of his training gear before heading home.

A United source said: “Januzaj is furious that he’s not part of Mourinho’s squad and has basically been banished to change in the Under-21 dressing room.

“He has spent the last couple of seasons with the first team when he’s not been out on loan and feels he should have been treated better.”

£20 million valuation

The winger made 63 first team appearances under David Moyes and Louis van Gaal but isn’t even being given an opportunity to revive his career by Mourinho.

The Red Devils are prepared to send him out on a loan if they don’t receive a bid that comes close to their £20 million valuation.
