Manchester United Football Club are known for producing their young talents, and nursing their ability turning them into world class stars. Chris Smalling obviously sees the development of players first-hand, and has singled out Cameron Borthwick-Jackson for individual praise.
The young defender has emerged recently, and has played his fair share of games over the last month or so.
“I think Cameron Borthwick-Jackson showed that he is ready for a stage like this.” Smalling said.
This is certainly high praise indeed, and whenever he has played at first-team level, he hasn’t looked out of place at all; particularly against Liverpool yesterday, when he replaced Ashley Young and looked very calm and composed in possession.
Hopefully this is a sign of things to come from the young man, who could well be the latest start to come out of Manchester United’s academy and make a big impact for the first-team.
