Manchester United assistant boss Carlos Queiroz expects big things from Angola striker Manucho Goncalves next season.

Manucho is spending this season on-loan at Panathinaikos and Queiroz told MUTV: "He just needs the opportunity to learn the game and get used to the pace of European football.

"We believe sending him on loan to Panathinaikos will help him to develop and if everything goes well we hope next season we will see him among our players."

The 25-year-old is said to have numerous attributes that will see him fare well in Greece.

"First of all he is a player that can score goals," explained Queiroz. "He's not the sort of player you come across easily and to have the possibility to bring quality forwards to our club doesn't happen very often.

"We are absolutely convinced he has enough qualities and potential to have a chance in the game, despite the fact that he is now 25."
