Adnan Januzaj is impressing soccer fans around the world with his recent play on the pitch.
This young and extremely talented midfielder hails all the way from Brussels, Belgium and it is safe to say that he is representing his country well. At just 5’11” and 165 pounds, Januzaj is not quite a physical specimen. However, defenders better tighten up when number 44 is in possession of the ball because he can make the defense look silly and score in the blink of an eye.
At just 18 years old, Januzaj has netted two goals in his first three appearances for Manchester United in the 2013-2014 season. For Januzaj to perform at such a high level while playing for a powerhouse club like Manchester United, he is showing that he is ready to step up and prove his star power!
Januzaj served as a substitution for Manchester United in his first two games this year but newly hired manager David Moyes decided to give Januzaj the nod to start the match against Sunderland on Saturday. Man was Moyes glad that he did that because Januzaj lifted Manchester United to a 2-1 victory with goals in the 55th and 61st minute of the game!
It didn’t take Januzaj long to make his mark as a potential star. He hopes to stay consistent and keep striking the ball with force. Manchester United already has two world-class superstars in Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie and the club could have possibly just found its third star. Januzaj looks very promising so far. With talent like his, the sky is the limit!
