Manchester United are a club with proud traditions, including giving youth a chance. One man who has been playing very well of late is Guillermo Varela, and Juan Mata has reaffirmed his personal belief in the 23-year old Uruguayan in his latest interview.
“I’m very pleased and I’m very happy for Guillermo Varela as he is doing very good on the right side.” Juan Mata began. “He’s going forward, he’s defending well, he’s being aggressive and he’s performing like he has been playing for 10 years.”
“He’s a very competitive guy, he’s very good for the team and the dressing room so we are very happy for him.”
This is certainly high praise indeed. Varela’s on-pitch performances have been nothing short of superb over the last few weeks and it has been great to watch him develop.
Whats also nice is the fact that he’s a positive influence in the dressing room as well. Not many youngsters have that ability at such a tender age, and its brilliant to see him getting involved in helping out with squad morale.
