Man Utd academy chief Butt: Garner chance will arrive

Manchester United academy chief Nicky Butt says James Garner's chance will come.

Garner has seen action at home and in Europe this season - though has been restricted to largely cameo appearances.

Butt told United Review: “Jimmy Garner is a good player. He's very mature for his age, so he can handle all the hype and all that comes with playing in the first team. He's scored some good goals in the Under-23s and the EFL Trophy, so he's developing that bit.

“He's just got to be patient because he's a very good player who will hopefully have a long career at Manchester United. There's no rush with him. He's still growing, still got to build himself up in the gym and naturally grow."
