Man Utd boss Moyes says Januzaj just like Rooney

Manchester United boss David Moyes has likened Adnan Januzaj to Wayne Rooney.

He is sure Januzaj will wear the No 10 shirt in the future.

Moyes said: "We're trying to bring the boy along at the right pace. He's not got a problem just now. We have not seen any signs of a dip in form so I'm sure we will continue using him.

"In time his best position will be No 10 but while he's so young it's better to introduce him on the left or right although he's a terrific centre forward as well.

"He's that talented he can play in several positions. The boy is working really well and whatever job we give him, he's that talented he can do it.

"I don't want to put too much expectation on the boy, though, which is why I will take him out so he doesn't tire. But he's got something which I haven't seen for a long time.

"I'm trying to keep the reigns on him a little bit. And I will take him out of the team at times this year so he doesn't peak."
