Manchester United Under-23s Development Squad

Manchester United Under-23s Development Squad? Youth players are the backbone of a successful side and over the years Manchester United have produced a plethora of talented players. The likes of David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Marcus Rashford have gone onto establish themselves pretty firmly.

All the recent managers have encouraged youth talents and interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also believes in promoting young players.

James Garner, Angel Gomes, Tahith Chong and Mason Greenwood all have had their chances under the Norwegian. With the season coming to its business end we could witness more young players coming to the senior setup.

The present Manchester United U23 side is being managed by Ricky Sbragia.

The earlier Under 21 Premier League was abolished as a new sleek and sharp Premier League 2 was introduced from 2016-17 season.

The idea was to match the technicality, physicality and intensity with the Premier League to give the young players a chance to showcase their skills.

United have since been participating in the league and are one of the most successful teams.

Matej Kovar

The 18 year old was promoted from the Under 18 side having only signed for United from FC Slovacko in January. His rapid progress at the  Under 18 level helped him in gaining a quick promotion to the next level.

Alex Fojticek

Became the first ever Slovakian international to represent Manchester United following his arrival at the club back in 2016.

Paul Woolston

The 20 year old has loads of experience at the youth level and joined the club back in November having impressed the Academy hierarchy in a number of trials.

Tyrell Warren

The imposing centre back has been one of the most matured defender and has had his ups and downs since being promoted to the U23s side. His impressive display in the UEFA Youth League earned plaudits and he has been very influential for the reserves side.

Lee O’Connor

The captain of the Republic of Ireland youth team has been the undisputed leader in the United backline.

Matthew Olosunde

The 21 year old has already represented the USA at the senior level. Usually a right back he can also operate in the heart of the defence.

Luca Ercolani

Another versatile defender Luca Ercolani joined the Red Devils from Italian side Forli.

George Tanner

The 19 year old has been quite regular for the Reserves this season and has mostly been deployed as a fullback.

Max Taylor

The Mancunian defender is undergoing cancer treatment and is expected to be declared fully fit very soon.

Angel GomesManchester United Team Under-23s Development Squad Angel Gomes

The number 10 has represented England at all levels and has also appeared for the United senior side.

DJ Bufffonge

The midfielder is equally comfortable in both attacking and defensive roles and is a key figure in manager Ricky Sbragia’s setup.

Aidan Barlow

The creative midfielder mainly operates from the left side.

Nishan Burkart

The talented centre forward helped United in winning the Under-18 Premier League North Title last season and got promoted to the Reserves side this season.

Tahith ChongManchester United Team Under-23s Development Squad Tahith Chong

When it comes to dribbling opponent defenders with ease there is perhaps a no better player than Tahith Chong. United fend of a number of opponents to bring in the player from Dutch side Feyenoord back in 2016.

Joshua Bohui

A natural number nine he has been the preferred choice for Ricky Sbragia this season.

Millen Baars

The right winger has shown lots of promises since joining the Red Devils back in 2017.
