Jose Mourinho stopped the development of youngster Josh Harrop.
Former United attacking midfielder Josh Harrop is currently on loan at Ipswich Town.
Harrop scored on his senior debut for United back in the 2016/17 season.
That season Harrop was the top-scorer for the U23’s with 10 goals but was rejected a contract offer with Man United.
Former United youth coach Lee Waddington believes Harrop was more a victim of the circumstance with the managerial situation at the club back then.
“He was born and bred in Stockport, just like myself, started coaching him when he was about 5 and look, I would never say that you can see it in a kid when they’re 5 or 6, but he just had something really special,” Lee told the Manchester Evening News.
“His technical ability and his ability to get out of tight spots and really do the unusual with a high-level of creativity, underpinned by a real great work ethic.
“For me… just my opinion on this… If Mourinho would have been replaced earlier by Ole I think Josh would still be there and would have a big number of Premier League games under his belt but that’s the luck of the draw.”
