Januzaj will likely face Liverpool tonight for the u21s at Old Trafford, and having played there before during the FA Youth Cup loss to Burnley and in the 1-0 win against West Brom, the 18 year old is looking forward to returning to the big stage.
Although United’s passage into the semi finals of the u21 competition is already guaranteed, tonight’s game against such high profile opposition is one of the biggest of the season and Januzaj is looking to impress on the big stage as he told ManUtd.Com:
“The FA Youth Cup [against Burnley] was the first time I’d played at Old Trafford, which was great.
“It will be even better with all the fans there. I was very motivated by it and it was a good feeling to play there. We will try to win everything this year as well [like last year]. I like to win so we will do everything to win the Barclays Under-21 championship, as well as the Lancashire and Manchester Senior Cups.
“I hope we win it all again this year.”
With Januzaj handed a squad number by Sir Alex, it is thought that he could appear for the first team before the season ends and with a home tie against Swansea coming up, he may get further chance to shine on the Old Trafford stage.
