VIDEO: Manchester United’s starlet Angel Gomes – You’ll think he’s Ronaldinho
Angel was signed by Manchester United as a 13-year-old and has consistently played in higher age groups, making his Under-18 debut as a 14-year-old.
He only turned 16 recently, but is now a vital part of the Under-18s set-up, while also earning international recognition, captaining England’s Under-16 and -17 sides.
Has made a fast start to the new season, bagging a hat-trick off the bench against Everton for the Under-18s before captaining England’s Under-17s and turning 16 – all in the same week.
Nominally an attacking midfielder, Gomes’ future looks set to be in the number 10 position.
Technically very sound, with superb dribbling ability and close control, Gomes also has an eye for goal as his scoring record this season shows.
But equally impressive are two key mental attributes that he has displayed early in his career.
HERE WATCH HIM IN ACTION
