Pictures: Man Utd youngsters join in first-team training session

Manchester United are back! In first team training anyway… as expected, several youngsters will in amongst the group.

Slowly but surely, we’re edging closer to seeing Manchester United in action again. The 2021/22 season is shaping up to be a promising one – and it definitely looks like we’ll see fans packing out Old Trafford on a regular basis too!

Well, the journey began this week, with Manchester United starting their first-team training sessions ahead of our pre-season games in a fortnight’s time.

As expected, many of the regular faces were missing due to international commitments. However, their absences provided opportunities for the next generation.

The United cameraman snapped several youngsters, including James Garner, Facundo Pellistri and Dylan Levitt, taking part in yesterday’s session. You absolutely love to see it.

Obviously, some of these young guys will be integrated back into the U23s squad when the time is right. However, if these players impress, then why won’t they be given the chance to stick in and around the first-team squad?

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has always shown a willingness to give youth a chance. No doubt we’ll see some of these kids playing in our pre-season games, too, which will give the Baby Faced Assassin a better idea of whether they’re ready to make the jump or not.

Personally, I’m a massive fan of Garner. He’s done his work away from Old Trafford on loan and I genuinely do believe the Englishman is ready to take his place in that United midfield.

It’s also nice to see Tahith Chong back at the club, though I reckon he’s rapidly approaching the last chance saloon of his United career…

Will we see any of these guys given minutes when the competitive action starts? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
