Manchester United are soon to welcome a fresh young talent to the senior squad to join the likes of Marcus Rashford and co., according to Under-23s coach Neil Wood.
Wood is confident that Teden Mengi will be able to replicate 19-year-old defender Brandon Williams’ success by earning a call-up by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the near future.
Wood told Manchester Evening News: “Teden has been fantastic. He came up to us quite early on in the season and, a bit like Brandon in a sense, he came from the 18s and took his chance.
“He played really well and he kept his place in the team. And when he dropped back down at the end of the season to lead the Youth Cup team, he put in some excellent performances there.
“We’ll be looking to work with him next season and he’s one [player] we want to “do a Brandon” with, push him on and the goal is to try and get him pushed up into that first team if we can.”
