Man Utd U18 Coach McGuinness Happy To See Van Gaal Giving Locals Their Chance

It has been reported that Manchester United U18 coach Paul McGuinness says everyone in the academy are delighted seeing so many graduates get their chance.

Jesse Lingard has been starring for United in recent weeks, while Cameron Borthwick-Jackson has made his debut.

McGuinness told MUTV: “It’s great for everybody at the club. I think they’re very much aware within the hierarchy of the club as well, that being Manchester United is just not the same if it doesn’t have a core of homegrown players.

“It’s part of the ingredients, the brand and it wouldn’t be the same if we didn’t have homegrown players. You can see there are frustrations at one or two other clubs in the fact they’re not getting homegrown players in and you’ve seen we had two or three involved the other week. You’ve got to applaud the manager for that and he’s carrying on a very long tradition.”
