Manchester United reserve team coach Warren Joyce believes Angelo Henriquez is fitting in well at Manchester United, having made his debut against Newcastle and followed this up with an appearance against Sunderland.
Henriquez joined United this summer but has had to wait to make his debut, when it finally came he capped it with a goal, scoring a back post header as United beat Newcastle last Friday.
Following an injury to Marnick Vermijl on Monday, he was drafted in to start against Sunderland and crafted a good chance for himself as United fought to a draw in a tough game at Eppleton.
Henriquez himself has said he is here to get an education before he considers the first team and that game will have taught him a fair bit about what it takes to make it in England and Warren Joyce is happy to see the Chilean fitting in so well:
“Angelo is a great lad. He’s come to the country and fitted in well.
“He’s working hard in training but we had three forwards up there [at Sunderland] even if we didn’t play like that in the first half.
“It wasn’t just one up front – we had three forwards looking for rotations but we didn’t retain the ball long enough to get into positions where we could develop those situations.”
