Solskjaer makes decision on Elanga’s future after teenager impressed in Man Utd’s defeat to QPR

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hinted teenager Anthony Elanga could stay at the club this season rather than head out on loan.

The 19 year old came off the bench and scored in the 4-2 defeat to QPR, while he started in the pre-season win over Derby County last weekend.

“‘It would be easier to say the boy should go on loan but he’s doing so well,” said Solskjaer after the loss to QPR.

“He’s electric, his pace, his skill, he’s not afraid of anything. He’s go the courage, the bravery of a Man Utd player.

“Today he created chances for others, created chances for himself, scored a good goal on his most difficult opportunity.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s going to be staying here. It depends, we know it’s important for him to develop and get game time but at the moment we’ve not really decided.

“If he keeps on like he is, we might want to keep him.”
