Blackmore calls for Man Utd to give Wilson new chance

Manchester United hero Clayton Blackmore says the club should hand James Wilson a new deal.

The striker has spent time on loan at Brighton, Derby, Sheffield United and Aberdeen since being frozen out of the first team picture under Louis van Gaal at United.

“Congratulations James Wilson, scored for Aberdeen two assists last game, maybe Man Utd should give you a chance," the former Wales international tweeted.

"When Van Gaal was in charge the system he played wasn't good for strikers or no.10 players, no passes or crosses.

"If you get the ball to Wilson he will do the rest."
