Manchester United youth coach Andy Welsh has hailed his young charges after their Champions Youth Cup success in Malaysia.
Febian Brandy hit a superb winner in Sunday's final against Juventus in Kuala Lumpur, sealing United's honour of being the first winners of the prestigious tournament.
"I'm simply delighted with the result," said Welsh after the game. "I was also extremely pleased with the performance of the players.
"They stuck to the game plan from the start and it paid off handsomely. We played a patient game and relied on counter attacks, and it worked tonight."
He also told manutd.com: "It has been a fantastic tournament and we had a wonderful two and a half weeks here.
"The boys got to play teams from different part of the world and it was a learning experience for them. We will definitely return to defend the title next year."
