Manchester United talent Joshua Bohui scores first ever under-23 goals
Manchester United youngster Joshua Bohui has had a significant month.
At the weekend he scored for the under-23s in a 2-0 win with Middlesbrough, netting from an Angel Gomes assist.
This was Bohui’s second goal in as many under-23 games, following a goal in a 1-1 draw with Reading a week earlier.
The strikes ended Bohui’s long wait for an under-23 goal, which had spanned 24 matches.
Many of these had come from the bench, with the young striker now seemingly entrenched as a starter.
Bohui is 19, and needed to start stepping up.
Four goals in nine at under-19 level in the UEFA Youth League showed he could do it, he just needed to deliver.
Getting his first goals at under-23 level will be a huge boost to his confidence, after an unfortunate run upon stepping up.
It is too early to expect Bohui to challenge for the first team, and it must be remembered he is only one year younger than Marcus Rashford.
The former Brentford trainee now needs to continue his scoring run to keep progressing his career and make a name for himself.
