Manchester United Football Club are known for nurturing their home grown talents and turning them into world beaters. The pre-season tour is usually a good place to see the latest academy products coming through, and one of those was on display this summer.
Sean Goss, a 19-year old midfielder was given that opportunity by Louis van Gaal, and whilst in an interview with Manchester United’s official website, he revealed that his mum cried when he made his first-team debut.
Goss was asked about his family, and how they feel about him playing for one of the biggest clubs in the world:
“My mum did. She actually went to every tour game. She told me afterwards that she booked the time off last year just in case I was in the squad – I had no idea she’d done that!” Goss told ManUtd.com
“My dad couldn’t get the time off work unfortunately so my mum travelled all round on her own and came to all the games. I kept in touch with her throughout and it was good to know she was there on my debut. She said she was in tears when I came on!”
Goss has now been at Manchester United for three years and he is certainly making progress at Old Trafford. The German-born midfielder certainly has a considerable way to go before he can hold down a regular first-team spot, but he definitely has the talent to do so.
