Another first-team chance? This goal proves Man United boss should be looking at star

Adnan Januzaj, remember him? The Manchester United youth prodigy, who was one of the few positive aspects to come out of the David Moyes era in the 2013/2014 season, sent a timely reminder to current Red Devils boss Louis Van Gaal that he is ready to step up to the mark in the first team recently.

The midfielder scored a sublime goal for the United reserves in a friendly match against Oldham Athletic at the Carrington training ground. United won the game 4-0 with Andreas Pereira and Regan Poole adding to Januzaj’s beautifully guided finish from just outside the area.

With Manchester United struggling to maintain their push for a finish in the top four, falling behind in the Europa League first leg against bitter rivals Liverpool and anticipating a tough FA Cup quarter final tie at home to West Ham United, this timely reminder from the Kosovo born player could spell the end of Januzaj playing in the U-21s for the Reds.
