The rise and rise of Belgian starlet Adnan Januzaj continues as his manager David Moyes recently compared him to Manchester United forward Wayner Rooney.
With manager David Moyes comparing him to Manchester United forward Wayner Rooney Belgian star Adnan Januzaj continues to shine. Rumours regarding Januzaj’s future were put to rest as Manchester United and David Moyes backed him when the youngster went on to seal a 5 year contract at the club.
Many top European clubs, including Barcelona, Chelsea and Manchester City were monitoring the situation and willing to sign Adnan but now Moyes and company heave a sigh of relief.
Januzaj played a starring role in Manchester United’s win over Sunderland a fortnight ago in the Premier League. With the defending champions trailing 0-1, the youngster celebrated his first league start with two goals to turn the game around and give his team a crucial 2-1 victory. Moyes played a key role in the development of a young Wayne Rooney at Everton and he feels that the 18-year-old is on par with the English striker.
“Wayne Rooney, Charlie Nicholas, Paul McStay – Adnan would be in that category,” Moyes said. With Manchester United taking on Southampton this weekend, Januzaj’s future will be a much greater news than dropping points for Moyes.
