Man Utd starlet Angel Gomes grateful for 'amazing' debut

Angel Gomes made Manchester United history on Sunday by becoming the club's youngest player in the Premier League era.

The 16-year-old replaced club captain Wayne Rooney in the latter stages of Man United's 2-0 win over the Eagles as Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho selected a youthful XI ahead of Wednesday night's Europa League final against Ajax.

Another youngster, Kane Wilson, remained on the bench for West Brom as Tony Pulis joined Mourinho in giving his talented youngsters a taste of the match-day experience.

He is the first 16-year-old to play for United since Norman Whiteside in 1982 and the club's youngest debutant since David Gaskell in 1956 - 61 years ago.

Gomes, born on August 31, 2000, is also the first United player in any competition to be born this millennium. "I can only thank God for this - Thank you everyone for the support".

He has however still managed to return eight goals and 10 assists in 37 appearances in all competitions for Manchester United this season and many believe he still has what it takes to remain in England's top-flight.

"I felt the players made it easy for me really". Before coming on, I was speaking to Michael Carrick about how to get into the pockets and stuff and he helped me out a lot when I came on. Memorably, his hat-trick against Everton last August saw him - then just 15 - become the youngest player in 15 years to accomplish such a feat at Academy level. "Who knows, I'm not sure what the plans are for next season".
