Manchester United wonder kid backed to succeed by best player in the world

Manchester United Football Club has often been known for producing some of the best talent in the world, and that trend looks set to continue, as Lionel Messi gives his backing to James Wilson – the 20-year old striker who has come through our famous youth academy.

In a campaign fronted by sporting powerhouses Adidas, Lionel Messi has given his thoughts on some players to keep an eye on in the future. On top of that list is our talented frontman.

This is obviously the highest of compliments James Wilson can get. Lionel Messi is without doubt one of the best footballers ever, and to get praise and recognition from him must be a huge confidence booster for young James Wilson.

The striker has found himself out of the side since the beginning of the season, but he could well earn his first start against Middlesbrough later tonight, as Louis van Gaal plans to make changes to give some of United’s youngsters a go.
