Waddington: Harrop would still be at Man Utd if Solskjaer was in charge and not Mourinho

Former Manchester United youth coach Lee Waddington says Josh Harrop should still be at Old Trafford.

Harrop was picked up by Preston North End, where had enjoyed some success before being loaned to League One's Ipswich Town this past January.

Waddington told the Manchester Evening News: "He was born and bred in Stockport, just like myself, started coaching him when he was about 5 and look, I would never say that you can see it in a kid when they're 5 or 6, but he just had something really special.

"His technical ability and his ability to get out of tight spots and really do the unusual with a high-level of creativity, underpinned by a real great work ethic.

"For me... just my opinion on this... If Mourinho would have been replaced earlier by Ole I think Josh would still be there and would have a big number of Premier League games under his belt but that's the luck of the draw."
