​Burnley starlet McNeil delighted to face former club Man Utd

Burnley youngster Dwight McNeil still cannot believe the type of week he has enjoyed at the club.

The youngster started in the Europa League clash against Olympiacos and then against Manchester United in the Premier League.

While his side did not emerge victorious in either game, the 18-year-old attacker is grateful for the experience.

"It's been a dream come true, it's happened so fast," McNeil said to the Lancashire Telegraph.

"I found out on Wednesday I was starting in Europe. With how the first leg went being 3-1 down I didn't expect to be starting, I just expected to be in and around it.

"But I was really happy when I found out I was just starting.

"And then I started against United and I'm a United fan as well, I couldn't believe it, it was another dream come true, but it's about taking it in and taking it on board."
