Juan Mata: One Player I’ve Been Really Impressed With At Manchester United Is James Wilson.. He Will Be A Great

Juan Mata lines up for Manchester United in the first game of their Premier League season against Swansea today.

And he’s shared his thoughts on life at United in an interview with soccerbible.com.

As well as showing his happiness at life under new gaffer Louis van Gaal, the Spanish international waxed lyrical about one of the Old Trafford academy graduates.

James Wilson, 18, made his first team debut at the end of last term and hit a double as United beat Hull 3-1.

And Mata has revealed he is very impressed with the youngster who he believes can be a great player for the club.

He said:

One player that I’ve been really impressed with is a young striker we have in the academy; James Wilson.

“He scores a lot of goals in training and I think he will be a great player for us in the near future.”

It’s exciting times for the United faithful who appear to have more stars emerging from the youth set-up.
