Europa: Former Manchester United’s wonderkid, Adnan Januzaj to battle Red Devils live on StarTimes


Adnan Januzaj, former Manchester United’s prodigy who fell short of expectation after being tipped for the top at United has found a new form at Real Sociedad.

The winger will face off against the Red Devils this week after a career at Old Trafford that promised plenty but delivered little.

Leg one of round 32 will kick-off on Thursday at 6:55 pm live on StarTimes.     

United fans will be hopeful that Januzaj does not come back to haunt them, with many likely having not thought about their former child prodigy for a number of years.

While Januzaj is in agreement that his time at United was certainly a disappointment, he is not about to dwell on it as he prepares to face his former club for the first time when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side take on Sociedad in the last 32 of the Europa League.

Now 26, Januzaj has become a key figure at La Real during his three-and-a-half seasons in Spain, recording 16 goals and 16 assists in 109 appearances for the club as Imanol Alguacil’s side continue to push for success domestically and on the continent.
