Youth players have been the lifeline of Manchester United since time immemorial. As such, that rich history and tradition of promoting and developing young legs has always served the Premier League giants well.
Under the tutelage of Ole Gunnar Solskjær, this has continued and the recent fruits of their teenagers is testament to the same. In addition to that, the club continues to scout for and add players to their ranks on a regular basis from all across Europe.
The starlets are then often loaned out in a bid to develop. In that regard, fans will be happy to see how one recently loaned-out player of their has been doing.
Tahith Chong scored a beautiful goal with his on-loan side Werder Bremen.
Chongtent alert! 🚨
— SV Werder Bremen EN (@werderbremen_en) August 29, 2020
The goal came during a club-friendly against FC Groningen which Bremen secured with a handsome 4-0 victory. Chong’s goal was the fourth and decisive one of the game, all being wrapped up early in the 34th minute itself.
Manchester United supporters were clearly very pleased with the effort of their youth talent. There was certainly great quality to the attempt as the 20-year-old Dutchman dribbled his way past defenders confidently before launching into the strike.
Unlike other academy graduates like Mason Greenwood and Brandon Williams, Chong was unable to secure regular football with the Red Devils. However, the fact that Ole Gunnar Solskjær and company elected to send the winger out on loan may speak volumes about what kind of potential he has to develop into.
In that regard, the Bundesliga is certainly an excellent place to develop at and youth talent brimming in the ranks of top German sides is testament to the same.
How many more such goals will Chong net once the season commences and will the effort be translated in a United jersey in the near future?
