Man Utd boss Ferguson: Powell looks great prospect

Manchester United midfielder Nick Powell won praise from manager Sir Alex Ferguson after victory over Shanghai Shenhua.

Ferguson was pleased with Powell's contribution, even if he did miss a good chance to open his Reds account.

"Nick Powell did well," said the boss. "It's his first game, he's only 18. But he got a really bad tackle - a sore one - in the first half. He played on but I thought it was better to take him off. He was feeling it a bit. He's two-footed, he has good balance and awareness about him. The boy looks like he can become a real top player."
