After proclaiming he would be giving youngsters a chance at Old Trafford, it appears Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a man of his word.
A number of the Red Devils’ academy prospects impressed during pre-season, but have struggled to get a look-in for the opening few games of the Premier League campaign.
However, speaking in his pre-match press conference ahead of the Europa League clash against Astana on Thursday night, Solskjaer confirmed both Mason Greenwood and Axel Tuanzebe will be starting the match.
After hearing the duo would make their first starts of the season in the mid-week game, United fans took to Twitter to voice their thoughts on Solskjaer’s announcement.
Many supporters of the Manchester side insisted “Europe ain’t ready” and revealed that the “end is near” for Astana.
Some Red Devils fans hailed Solskjaer for finally giving youth a proper chance, and admitted they are now looking forward to seeing the prospects in action.
Check out some of the reaction of United fans below:
