The latest Manchester United signing, Lee O’connor said that it was easy to accept United’s offer, being the great club that it is. He said that the club he just signed for is among the best clubs in the world of football, and he was eager to start working for it.
Lee O’connor is only 15 years old and he will join United’s academy, headed by United legend, Nicky Butt. Nicky Butt is eager to work with the teenager in the united academy in the summer.
Signing Lee from Waterford reminds the Red Devils of John O’Shea, current Captain of Sunderland FC and Vice-Captain of the Irish National team who was signed from the same club and won several titles with United before his departure in 2011.
Lee expects to be a success as well. He says he has no doubts that he is in the right place at the right time in his career, and expects to help the club excel.
The teenager believes that Manchester United will help him become the player he has always wanted to be. The team has all it takes to transform young players into the best players in the game, and Lee is keen to benefit from the United youth system that has already produced highly-sought after talents in football.
He has a lot faith in Nicky Butt and the current Manchester United head coach, Louis Van Gaal. The United youth system has been compared with the Manchester City’s system, and there are claims that it is in chaos. To these claims, Nicky Butt has said that the United’s youth is producing great players. it only lacks a training complex that is as good as that of their noisy neighbors.
