“He fully deserves his chance with Manchester United and now with England”
“He fully deserves his chance with Manchester United and now with England and the England squad.
“I think first of all, which has been great to see, is his attitude for a young lad.
“He’s come in and he’s listened to the manager and to players. He’s worked hard, he’s got a really good attitude.”
