Following yesterday’s article, today I will continue to talk to you about the other two outstanding young players in the U18 match against Burnley. One is a Spanish left-back who moved freely from Real Madrid this summer
Fussen came out of West Ham’s youth training system and then entered Tottenham’s youth academy. When he decided to leave Tottenham in early 2019, he received the attention of many Premier League clubs. In the end, Manchester United defeated Arsenal and other competitors to win at the age of 14. Fussen, and signed a professional contract with Fussen, who is under 16 years old, in April this year. In the 2019/2020 season, Füssen, who is only 15 years old, played 11 times for Manchester United, including 7 appearances for Manchester United U18 and 2 starts. At the same time, he is also the core of the England U16 national team, wearing the No. 10 jersey. If this season develops smoothly, it will only be a matter of time before Fussen jumps to England U18 and Manchester United U23.
In the match played for Manchester United U18 last season, Füssen played more of the role of the team's right winger. In the U18 match against Burnley this season, Füssen started as a midfielder and scored two goals. , And threatened the opponent's goal many times. Fussen is a player with outstanding dribbling ability. Whether it is a one-on-one pass on the wing or a tandem organization in the middle, Fussen can rely on his dribbling ability to give himself a comfortable ball space and create for himself Better handle the ball route. While possessing excellent foot skills, Fussen's physical balance ability is also impressive. Although he has just turned 16 and his body is still developing, Fussen faces a defensive player who is a few years older and stronger Not afraid of physical confrontation, and when dribbling encounters physical confrontation, he can also protect the ball and maintain his body balance. Similarly, Fussen's dribbling pace and natural use of fake moves when holding the ball are also full of talent.
A tricky long shot from outside the penalty area and a volley after finding a good opportunity in the penalty area. Both goals showed Füssen's excellent attacking ability. As a midfielder, he played in the team's position during the war. The running position and response are also done very well, taking the ball in multiple positions in the midfield to form a series.
What Fussen needs to improve is his passing ability and passing awareness. In two counterattacks against Burnley U18, in one of them, Fussen did not distribute the ball to the running teammates in time as the ball holder. He chose to complete the finish by himself. On another occasion, although Fussen observed his teammates' running position, he took two more steps, which led to the defensive players in place and missed the opportunity to counterattack. And Fussen's ability to pass the threatening ball also needs more samples of the game in the front midfielder to observe. The 16-year-old Fussen, as a right winger and attacking midfielder, has a bright future in Manchester United, because the Manchester United youth team's right wing position lacks such talent as Fussen. Two goals are just the beginning. I hope Fussen will take over. Continue to grow in the next game.
As the leader of the 03 generation left-backs in Real Madrid's youth training, Real Madrid wants to renew with A-fee, but in the terms of the renewal, A-fee can only play for Castilla in the 22-23 season, plus Real Madrid has a strong reserve of left-back personnel, A-fee became a free agent and joined the Manchester United reserve team.
The 17-year-old is 1.84 meters tall and has excellent passing skills and passing vision. His long pass rate with his left foot is also very impressive. He can complete large-scale transfers in the backcourt and change the direction of attack. The ball goes to the center to participate in the offensive planning. A-Fee’s defense is more dependent on his outstanding awareness of the position and the anticipation of the opponent’s line to intercept. Tackles are rare. When he comes to England to play, A-Fee’s defensive aggression still needs Improve to deal with a more intense attack and defense rhythm. In addition to scoring a wonderful small angle goal in the Manchester United U18 debut, A-Fei and Emeran also played well on the wing, except for the common two-by-one wing and long pass. After the passing and running, Emeran also made full use of his own internal threats to create an opportunity for A-Fee to insert the edge, and A-Fee's ability to cross in this game is also impressive. Yiliang, low flat ball, half high ball, high ball pass accuracy rate is high, the wing back is sweet.
However, I personally believe that A-Fee’s future development path is full of variables. The outstanding ball ability, excellent height and mobility make it possible for A-Fee to develop in the direction of central defender or midfielder in the future, and his ability is U18 Appearance should only be an adaptation, transitional phase, in the mid-season A-fee is likely to represent U23 games.
