Man United fans pay tribute to Angel Gomes

Angel Gomes became Manchester United’s youngest player in the Premier League era when he appeared off the bench against Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon.

The 16-year-old replaced club captain Wayne Rooney in the latter stages of Man United’s 2-0 win over the Eagles as Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho selected a youthful XI ahead of Wednesday night’s Europa League final against Ajax.

Gomes took to social media site Twitter on Monday afternoon to post a picture of himself with Rooney from 2007, with the midfielder insisting that ‘dreams can come true’.

As expected, the Man United supporters are excited about a player that made his Under-18s debut at the age of 14, and many have predicted Gomes to become the club’s new number 10 following his short cameo against Sam Allardyce’s team.

It would be a big surprise if Gomes was actually handed Rooney’s number 10 shirt for the 2017-18 campaign, but there is every reason to believe that the teenager could be a future star at Old Trafford.
