Jose Mourinho was in attendance for Manchester United’s Under-23 clash against Tottenham Hotspur Under-23s at Old Trafford on Monday evening.
A disappointing night for the home side saw them suffer a 3-1 defeat, but Tahith Chong and Andre Gomes would have both caught Mourinho’s eye on the night.
Gomes, of course, appeared for the first team against Yeovil Town in the FA Cup last week, with the 17-year-old making a serious impression as a late substitute.
Chong, 18, was on the scoresheet against Tottenham during what was his debut for the Under-23 team.
The former Feyenoord youngster has only recently returned to action following 10 months on the sidelines, and his performance on Tuesday suggested that he is not too far away from potentially being in the plans of Mourinho.
Gomes posted an image of the two players on Twitter, and the United fans were out in force to reveal their excitement. Indeed, many supporters believe that Gomes and Chong will both star for the first team in the not-too-distant future.
