The sporting director of the Chilean u20 national side has questioned the logic of Angelo Henriquez’s move to Manchester United.
The 18 year old completed his move to Old Trafford this week, and whilst being being spoken of highly at Old Trafford, it is unlikely that he will see substantial playing time with Wayne Rooney, Robin Van Persie, Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez all ahead of him whilst Will Keane is still to return from injury.
A regular in his first season as a first teamer at his old club Universidad De Chile, Henriquez came to United after impressing on trial in 2011 but Fernando Carvallo believes that he has been too hasty to join one of Europe’s big boys and feels he would have been better suited continuing his football education at his old club:
“Bryan Rabello is playing in Sevilla B, Diego Rubin isn’t under consideration at Sporting and Angelo Henriquez won’t get many opportunities at Manchester United.
“It would have been better for him to continue growing at Universidad de Chile.
“It’s an advantage to have players in Europe, but the acceleration of their growth process does suffer.
“In Chile a lot of them were regulars for their teams, but over there they aren’t really under consideration.”
