Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has admitted he’s open to giving young players a chance at Manchester United only if they deserve it.

“I am open to bringing young players,” Ten hag said.

“You have seen the last couple of games we bring in Alejandro Garnacho because he deserves it by his performances on the training pitch, and if players deserve it and can contribute to our success, we will bring them.

“So I’m also open for other players and Manchester United have a big reputation for bringing up young players from the academy into the first team.

“I’m really one who will back that process, I will be really positive in the process, I will have communication with the academy, with the coaches from the Under-21s. We have in our coaching staff someone who is responsible for the communication with the Under-21s and the academy, so we have a good line.

“But, in the end, players have to deserve their chances, players have to contribute because it’s about winning. If we can, we will bring them.”
