Manchester United pundits wax lyrical on young heroes Kobbie Mainoo and Amad Diallo – Man United News And Transfer News

Manchester United showed some much needed fight to secure a 3-2 win over Newcastle United on Wednesday night at Old Trafford.

Goals from Kobbie Mainoo, Amad Diallo and Rasmus Hojlund were enough to secure the win and excite the Old Trafford crowd about the future.

Defensive frailties were still very much on display but the performance will give fans a little bit of hope of getting a result at Brighton on Sunday which could see them secure European football if Newcastle drop points at Brentford.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Manchester United legends Roy Keane, Wayne Rooney and Andy Cole waxed lyrical on the performances of two of the Red Devils’ youngsters.

Commenting on Mainoo’s performance Rooney claimed, “he’s been fantastic, he’s played a lot of games, it’s not easy. He’s been called up for England. He’s had to take a lot on but over the last few months he’s been a mainstay and he has a real bright future. United fans should be really excited by him.”

When asked whether Mainoo is a bright spark Roy Keane replied, “yeah I think so. It’s a difficult challenge for him but he’s added a few goals to his game. He has got to stay grounded and he’s still learning his trade.”

The 19 year old has not hit the heights of winter but he has a habit of reminding fans exactly what he is capable of and a smart finish tonight did exactly that.

Shortly after, Amad Diallo was the next United youngster to receive praise from the pundits.

Commenting on the Ivorian’s stunning strike that gave United the lead for the second time in the match Rooney claimed, “a great strike. He couldn’t have hit that any better and he deserved it.”

The all-time leading United goal scorer also praised Amad’s desire and bravery to get involved in the game.

“He always wanted the ball, it’s very encouraging and he tried things.”

“He’s done really well at Sunderland and I think he’s done well since he been in the team. There’s an opportunity for him to stake a claim in the team.”

Andy Cole echoed Rooney’s statements and added, “he’s waited a long time and he’s done well to get his first goal in the Premier League.”

United will now have the chance to earn a second consecutive league win when they travel to Brighton in the final game of the league season.
