Manchester United youngster Maxi Oyedele has doubled his professional career goal tally after getting on the scoresheet again.

Oyedele netted his first ever goal after coming off the bench for on-loan side Altrincham at the weekend in a 3-1 win at Woking.

The 18-year-old was rewarded with his first ever start this week in an away game at Barnet. His two previous appearances had been as a substitute.

Oyedele scored another game-changing goal, netting an equaliser to make it 2-2, with Altrincham going on to win the game 4-2.

Oyedele second goal in a week

Oyedele has had an excellent start to life on loan at the National League side, the first ever loan of his career.

He joined the club along with Joe Hugill and Sonny Aljofree in January, as part of a loan agreement which means they can still play for United’s under-21s if both clubs agree.

Oyedele is the only one of the trio to make an appearance for Altrincham so far and he has set a shining example.

Manager Phil Parkinson told the club’s website: “Maxi, all these lads we believed in and brought in, it’s paying dividends.”

For his goal, the match report read: “Oyedele turned sharply and drilled a low shot into the bottom left corner”, with the midfielder’s passing also praised.

The Poland youth international was part of United’s FA Youth Cup winning squad last season and is gaining invaluable experience right now in a competitive environment.

He is also thriving, and will want to return a better player, strong enough to even follow Kobbie Mainoo’s first team footsteps.

Not every youngster can have a fast-track route like Mainoo, some take a detour with loan moves. This spell at Altrincham could be the making of Oyedele.
