  • Red News 1st April 2021

    Danel James has been watching old videos of himself


    "I kind of thought I’m here for a reason and I looked back at loads of old clips of me being me and then looked at my new clips [and thought] I’m not doing that [anymore].

    “It was a reality to check for me in that you can take from him and you can take from different players around you but ultimately, you’re here because of what you do, and it goes back to what Giggsy said to me to just ‘be yourself’, that was so important.”

    Head of MUFCs Academy, Nick Cox, describes how players are supported as footballers and people


    "We’re really proud of the boys who have gone on to have careers away from us,”

    “I don’t just mean as footballers. We’re proud of boys who package up the skills they learn with us and go and have a career in any walk of life.

    “We want the boys to be successful in adult life, regardless of their footballing ability. We hope the Academy programme prepares them for adult life with the skills they learn, the people they meet and the places they go. Obviously, the number one objective is can we help boys play for Manchester United’s first team? I think, when you join our Academy, your chances of playing in the Premier League are significantly increased by being associated with United. But it’s still a small number of players who will achieve that so the next best thing is can we help boys go and have a career in professional football, away from our club?

    “Historically, we’ve always been able to do that and we’re continuing to do that. I know the coaching staff, every weekend, will be looking down the teamsheets across the various leagues and trying to identify how the kids are getting on, whether it’s those on loan or boys who have left us and found contracts elsewhere.

    “We’re remarkably proud of them. I think it’s a measure of the Academy how well we equip young people to go and have a career after Manchester United.”

    “I think we’re working with high-potential individuals in the first place. So they are identified to join our programme because they have the potential to go on and achieve great things in their chosen profession. I think our coaches provide really well-rounded education in football, whether that be tactical, technical, physical or psychological and off-the-field support. Along with that, we have some wonderful ambassadors at our club who are also striving to make sure we shape good people, good human beings. I think if you remain humble, grounded, driven, with a love of the game, and you are self-motivated then you’re going to be pretty well equipped for a career in football.

    “I think we encourage all those things and it’s a combination of players working within the football development programme and the development of the person that equips young people to achieve great things. And they really do achieve great things.

    “We’ve seen the boys go and do wonderful things in and out of football. The message we’ve always given to families and the boys who join us is look, we can’t promise you’ll be a professional footballer and we can’t promise you’ll play in our first team. But what we can promise is we will help you achieve your full potential, have an amazing authentic child-like experience in the Academy and the experience will be a wonderful addition to your childhood. You’re going to meet people, go places, learn skills that will remain with you for the rest of your life.

    “The association with United is going to be a headstart compared to some of the experiences your peers might be having. It’s that balanced approach which I think makes us successful. We’re not living in a world where we’re talking about young people definitely becoming professionals but young people will be presented with a wonderful opportunity. If you embrace it, the by-product is there might be the opportunity to play professional football. I think it’s an important message because I’ve seen and read, especially in recent weeks, that Academies are under scrutiny for the way young people are treated. In the clubs I’ve worked at, and particularly at Manchester United, I couldn’t speak more highly of the staff working in the best interests of the young people to support them, have amazing experiences that set them up for life and learn the skills and abilities to be a success in adulthood.

    “I think some of the best and certainly some of the hardest work we do is with boys after we’ve communicated to them that their future may not be at Manchester United. I’ve watched Tony Whelan passionately support young people in finding new clubs and opportunities to register elsewhere. I’ve seen Dave Bushell sitting down and having cups of teas with boys who left us long ago. I’ve seen boys associated with the club who have long since left us but they pop back to see the landladies and are hanging out with the children of the host families they stayed with.

    “Once you’ve had an association with Manchester United, you’re part of the family and part of that family for as long as you choose to be. The resources we have are available to young people even after they’ve left us. I think that is the art of coaching. It’s about building that trust, rapport, relationship and if our coaches are skilful enough, which they are, to build those links, they don’t just end when a contract expires. That trust and relationship lasts a lifetime. That is the mark of genuine youth development.”

        Alistair Campbell (in a new book he's got out) claims Sir Alex spoke to him about Rooney's drinking habits whilst at United

        "We chatted about Rooney. He sounded a bit down about him. The papers had been full of Rooney and prostitutes. I said, ‘What are you going to do about him?’

        Fergie appraently replied ... ‘What can I do? He is also the last guy who should take a drink’.”

            Could Lukaku return to MUFC ? Red News has been told its being discussed by the club ...

            We have an extra bit of news from inside United that came to us just after the current Red News fanzine went to print ...

            We have been told that the newly reorganised Manchester United recruitment committee is discussing the potential return of Lukaku to the club

            Inter have not paid the money that was due for him and United don’t believe they will be able to pay given impact on football club incomes from covid.

            Breaking the terms of the transfer contract means United can have Lukaku back for free (and other clubs cant sign him ahead of us) which gets a level of player the club wouldn’t otherwise have been able to afford (in their minds ... Red News has different views on what is affordable!)

            Lukaku has obviously impressed with his performances, his goals, his team play and his fitness (particularly staying injury free) since leaving

            They also believe it would be “a great signal of intent from the new footballing structure to take bold decisions to return the club to what it once was”

            They understand reds may laugh at the idea of bringing Lukaku back, given his performances in the shirt and how disruptive he was, but United will need to strengthen the forward line up as Cavani is likely to leave, and Martial is expected to be sold. Expectation is that reds will grumble but accept we are getting back a much improved player into a better team. Plus with games still likely to be played behind close doors, or with much reduced attendance, it’s felt it would give Lukaku chance to win over the fans and team-mates with his performances.
