Former Man United defender Berg: Januzaj can be world class

MUTV analyst Henning Berg believes young sensation Adnan Januzaj has the capability to become a world class player, according to Man United’s official website.

But Berg, who served Man United as a player between 1997-2000, was keen to emphasise that Red Devils fans should remain patient with the player given his tender age and relative lack of experience thus far.


“I have really enjoyed watching Adnan Januzaj play this season,” said Berg.


“You see young kids coming through and they do very well in parts of the game but Januzaj has the awareness and understanding, plus the touch and self-belief, that enables him to produce it when coming into the team for the first time. That is not easy. But we should not expect him to do it every game. Maybe the last one he played, at Cardiff, you could see that things won’t be 100 per cent every time but from what he has done so far, he has been fantastic.”


Januzaj has enjoyed a very impressive start to his Man United career, and Berg believes that with time and patience the Belgian striker can be a top striker on the world stage, comparing the 18-year-old to Arsenal star Mesut Ozil.


“David Moyes said he lacks one or two world class players for the team to be top in Europe but I think he has one extra world class player coming through the ranks. He reminds me of Mesut Özil in terms of temperament, awareness and understanding. I said that when I first saw him,” Berg continued.


“He just needs to be handled the right way and I’m 100 per cent sure that the manager will know how to do it and, if not, they can always ask Sir Alex. People should not take these things for granted because you don’t see players like this come through very often, so supporters and fans should appreciate seeing a kid like that playing with the big players because that is something special.”


Berg was a Premier League champion with Blackburn before moving to Man United in 1997. He enjoyed a solid stay at Old Trafford before returning to Ewood Park on loan in 2000, making the move permanent and staying at Blackburn until 2003. He spent a year at Rangers before retiring, and returned to Blackburn for a third spell – this time as manager – for a short stint last year.
