MANCHESTER UNITED wonderkid Zidane Iqbal will be playing against Young Boys after joining the club’s youth team – and no one will be surprised with such a name.
The academy pair are set to take their place on the United bench and could have a few minutes on the pitch if the scoreline is firmly in the side of Ralf Rangnick’s side.
Manchester-born Iqbal, who has represented Iraq U23s, has a ‘great attitude’, according to the former Sale United manager, so it’s no surprise he’s in the position he is in. .
The youngster is playing so well that he will have to be banned for ‘it’s not fair’ to his opponents.
Former coach Stewart Hamer told MAN: “He also has a great attitude, he’s always willing to learn and he plays with a big smile on his face and he’s quite happy to do whatever we challenge him to do.
“For example, everyone is involved as a goalkeeper, and he will score in the net just like everyone else.
“We had quite a bit of success if you can call it that at that stage, and Zidane was at the heart of that.
“There was a time when we played six-way matches when he would basically rip it off and we would pull him out and replace him because it wouldn’t be fair to the other side.
“Or sometimes we put him in goal so he doesn’t pose a danger.”
Iqbal, who has three goals in 15 games for United this season, will join academy stars Savage, Bjorn Hardley, Charlie Wellens, Sam Mather and Shola Shoretire.
The Shoretire striker, 17, has tasted his first game before, having made three games under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
More senior academy players like Anthony Elanga and Amad Diallo could be assigned to start in the deadly rubberfight.
