Manchester United coach Nicky Butt is pleased his U19 squad has an English core.
Raised a United fan in a tough part of east Manchester, Butt is proud that seven members of his Under-19s team are English.
"When you speak to parents, you can look them in the eye and say their lad has a chance here. It’s not a lie. Lots of players, like Richie Wellens and Robbie Savage, have come through and earned good money, even if they don’t make it at Manchester United."
