4. Adnan Januzaj was also awarded with Reserves Player of the Season at the end of last season.

6. Sir Alex recently rewarded him a first team jersey (No.44) as he made an appearance on the bench for the manager’s last ever EPL game against West Brom. Moyes on the other hand has already hinted the Belgian’s inclusion in the plans for the upcoming season.
