Manchester United youngster Victor Musa scored for the under-21s in a friendly with Blackpool.

Manchester United’s under-21s season came to an end on Friday with a 2-2 draw with Leicester City.

And while the under-18s season also ended at the weekend, the academy players are not being sent on holiday just yet.

Last night a Manchester United under-21 side were in action away at Blackpool, taking on their development squad.

Victor Musa scores for Manchester United under-21s

Manchester United drew the game 1-1 with Victor Musa coming off the bench to score a second half equaliser.

It was Victor Musa’s first goal at under-21 level for Manchester United, and while just a friendly, it is a great way for him to round off a very productive season.

Musa broke into the under-18s team this past season, and ended the campaign with six goals to his name.

The 16-year-old is set up nicely to kick on in 2023/24. It is a sign of trust that United gave Musa the opportunity to step up.

Manchester United almost win it

United missed a late penalty with Noam Emeran missing the target. This was a surprise as Emeran had scored twice in the under-21s final game of the league season.

Teden Mengi picked up minutes as a substitute, while Charlie Wellens sustained a first half injury and had to be withdrawn. Omari Forson was a particular threat throughout, but this was Musa’s night.

Starting XI: Vitek; Jurado, Hardley, Kambwala, Murray; Wellens, Collyer; Emeran, Gore, Forson; Wheatley.
