Manchester United’s new manager David Moyes is looking to make the most of the talent that the club has at its disposal according to his comments in a press conference from the club’s preseason Asian Tour aired by Sky Sports on Jul. 26, 2013.
Although he is a new manager to the club and has the task of filling the boots of Sir Alex Ferguson, a man who is likely to be revered as the greatest manager in the history of Manchester United and English Premier League football, Moyes believes that he has the club’s best interest at heart when looking within for more talent:
“It has been the history of Manchester United to try and get young players into the team, especially those that are our own products.
Most of the young players have been through the system here and we can try and get them some playing time for the first next year, that would be the aim.
But, they need to keep up their level of performances.”
The new Scottish manager’s predecessor was equally as focused on bring talent through the Manchester United system. No one can forget the team that Ferguson assembled out of academy graduates as the club’s first period of EPL domination in the 1990’s and early 2000’s were led by the likes of David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt, Robbie Savage, Phil and Gary Neville and more.
Moyes like the man before him will hope that he can build his own dynasty, a new dynasty, at Manchester United built with a core of young players coming from the academy. He already has Johnny Evans, Tom Cleverly, Danny Welbeck, Ryan Tunnicliffe, Sam Wootton, Will Keane, Jesse Lingard and Adnan Januzaj as home grown prospects pushing for their future in the first team.
The club also boast a large handful of young talent brought in that are set to be the future of the club in the likes of Rafael Da Silva, Phil Jones, Nick Powell, Chris Smalling, David De Gea, Wilfried Zaha, Alexander Büttner, Federico Macheda and more.
If Moyes can keep a hold of the talented bunch he has and just add the few key pieces here and there, there is no reason why he should have to work too hard to maintain the top level of success that the Red Devils have become known for and are expected to achieve every season.
