Angel Gomes already 'good enough for Man Utd' at 16

Former Manchester United star Clayton Blackmore says Angel Gomes - at 16 - is already good enough for the Premier League.

Gomes has had the chance to impress Jose Mourinho during occasional training sessions with the first team this season.

Blackmore now does some coaching at the United academy and tipped Gomes as one to watch earlier this year.

“He's good enough to be in the first team now but it's going to take him a year or two before everybody trusts him," said the former Wales international.

“A lot could happen in those two years, so hopefully he's going to still be there and play in the first team soon."
