Man Utd youngster Tom Thorpe happy with leadership role

Manchester United defender Tom Thorpe is proud of his leadership role with England U19.

Thorpe has captained England U19 and also United U21 this season.

He told manutd.com: "I was captain of England when we went to the Under-19 European Championship in the summer. It was a good experience as well as a very proud moment for me. We got to the semi-finals but we should have won really against Greece. There were a few hitches here and there but we should have reached the final. I’m always pleased to be captain whether it is for the club or my country."
