Manchester United defender returns to Old Trafford following loan spell

Manchester United’s Cameron Borthwick-Jackson has returned to Old Trafford, following a loan spell at Leeds United, according to Sky Sports News.

The 20-year-old Mancunian took the bizarre decision to move to one of our rivals on a short-term deal in August, but after making just six appearances for the Yorkshire club, the deal has been ended prematurely.

Under Louis van Gaal, Borthwick-Jackson looked like the left-back of the future for the Red Devils. However, when Jose Mourinho took charge, it seemed as though the gaffer wasn’t sold on his talents.

Borthwick-Jackson returning to the Theatre of Dreams gives the manager another option in the defensive third, and perhaps we’ll see him given an opportunity in a cup fixture here or there.

Who knows, if he works hard in training and a couple of players get injured, Borthwick-Jackson could force his way back into proceedings. What worries me though is the fact that he cannot earn a starting job in the Championship, so perhaps he wasn’t fully focused or his attitude wasn’t right. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens to him from now until the end of the campaign.
