Charlie McNeill is having the time of his life in the Manchester United youth team at the moment. He scored a brace today, leaving fans frothing at the mouth.
We won’t beat around the bush, this kid is special. Goals, work ethic, on-field leadership and most of all, insane ability.
Charlie McNeill is scoring goals galore during his debut season at his beloved Manchester United Football Club. He’s now scored 21 goals at youth level, becoming only the second-ever player in our history to do so (along with Mason Greenwood).
This time, McNeill would score another brilliant brace against Leeds United. The Reds would run out 4-2 winners in the cup game, too.
What I like most about McNeill is his elite mentality to win. If things aren’t going well, he’ll be the first one to ask his teammates to sharpen up, or give them a piece of advice if he notices something in-game. That ability cannot be taught. You either have it or you don’t and McNeill definitely has it.
At this point, it’s just about continuing to develop as a player. Obviously, time is more than on his side and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a manager who will allow McNeill as much of that as he needs before throwing him into the first team. Heck, there’s no better place for young talents than Old Trafford.
As you’d imagine, the United fans were buzzing with the 17-year-old star, whose brilliant brace lifted the Reds to yet another victory. Well played, young man.
Remember the name, Charlie McNeill.
