Ole said: “That should always be part of being a Manchester United Academy player, knowing the pathway is there,” Solskjaer said to United’s official website . “We, as coaching staff and as a club, will always give good, young players a chance if they go through the ranks, when you’re getting ready to get the chance to have a feel of the first team as well.”
“Hopefully, some really improve over the course of the season and get in and around the first team.”
