Russian prospect Sergey Pinyaev impresses in Man Utd trial game

Russian prospect Sergey Pinyaev is shining in trials for Manchester United.

The Chertanovo academy striker impressed for United in a bounce game against Burnley.

Chertanovo academy director Nikolai Larin told Sport-Express: “The United team was made up of the U-15 guys and U-16, and the U-17 players turned out for Burnley.

"The age of the opponents affected things - they won. But, in my opinion, the best in both teams was simply Sergey."
