Ryan Giggs made the number 11 shirt his own, and after requesting that the shirt number be passed on to Adnan Januzaj one the youth projects of Manchester United the future looked good for the Belgium midfielder. But in revelations over this weekend, Januzaj himself has expressed fears over his future as a Manchester United, according to the People.
Back in OCtober 2013, when David Moyes was at the helm of United, Adnan Januzaj signed a new five-year contract with the club, including a huge pay rise from his youth days and with the under-21s.
But, over the weekend it has been rumoured that Januzaj fears for his first team place as Louis van Gaal starts to mould and bring in players that could possibly keep him out altogether.
The People report that a unnamed MK Dons players asked Januzaj for his famous number 11 shirt after Manchester United were dumped out of the Capital One Cup, in which Adnan replied “Sorry, I want to keep it, as it might be my last game.”
Now, the above quote might be direct from the player as he wishes to keep the shirt, or by giving it to charity, but a strange quote to make in open public.
The question is for Louis van Gaal, where does he fit? The United boss commented during pre-season that he could well become a number 10, but United have plenty of players that can fill that role.
Januzaj featured for just three-minutes in Manchester United’s 0-0 draw against Burnley on Saturday.
Do you think Januzaj would be better to source maybe a loan move away from Old Trafford this season? Comment in the section below.
