Anthony Elanga has been putting in the graft ahead of a massive 2021/22 season for the youngster.
On the season’s final day against Wolverhampton Wanderers, Anthony Elanga would prove his worth. The speedy Swede would score a stunning header in the early-going to put his Manchester United side in front.
What followed was a complete performance from a young man who continues to improve. But for a serious injury at the back end of 2020, we definitely would have seen Elanga in the first-team far sooner.
The winger would make up for lost time, though, seriously impressing the Old Trafford Faithful during his few appearances.
Now, Elanga has to back that up heading into the 2021/22 campaign. He’s obviously got the talent, while you can’t fault his effort. The ripped United starlet would show off his six-pack as he’s working hard in pre-season training. He’d upload the photo and video to his Instagram stories.
It seems pretty clear that Elanga isn’t planning on giving up his first-team spot easily, despite the imminent arrival of a certain Jadon Sancho…
I guess now it all depends on how well Elanga plays during pre-season. If the winger does well, he deserves to stick around at Old Trafford and be used as a rotational option.
If Elanga struggles, a loan move wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world. Perhaps to a lower-tier Premier League side, who can offer him week-in-week-out starts.
For now, the message will be to just keep doing what you’re doing. This young man obviously has it in his locker and his chances will come at some point.
