Ben Pearson hoping to follow Januzaj into Man Utd first team

Ben Pearson hopes to follow former Academy teammate Adnan Januzaj into Manchester United's first team.

The young midfielder is regarded highly at Old Trafford.

He told manutd.com: "You never know, it may be a good time for me as I could get a chance like Adnan Januzaj did. He's taken it and pushed on from there. I accept the way these days, instead of throwing youngsters in, is to take more time and send them out on loan to get experience before trying them out. But you never know - Adnan didn't go out on loan so it might just be a case of getting a chance and taking it at the right time."
