Werder Bremen insists Man Utd calm over lack of Chong minutes

Werder Bremen insists there's no concern from Manchester United over the lack of action Tahith Chong has seen.

Since joining on-loan in the summer, Chong has only played 81 minutes in three Bundesliga games. In his 44 minutes in the German Cup against Carl Zeiss Jena, he managed to score a first goal for the club.

Werder chief Clemens Fritz told DeichStube: “Tahith is close to the team.

"Neither we nor Manchester United are concerned that he will not get enough playing time.

"There will be enough time for him. You can already see developmental steps in him."
