Feyenoord youth chief Makaay: Man Utd whiz Chong a rare talent

Feyenoord youth chief Roy Makaay has again spoken of losing Tahith Chong to Manchester United.

Chong made his Champions League debut this week for the dramatic win at PSG.

Makaay told De Telegraaf: "It was clear that Tahith was a rare talent. An all-round winger.

"Skillful in possession with individual actions and very fast."

On his move to United, Makaay added: "We had seen it coming, though. The conversations about his first contract simply took too long.

"Against the financial violence of Manchester United, you just can't fight it. It was a blow."
