Will Fish becomes latest youngster to join in Manchester United first team training

Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick is giving more Manchester United youngsters a chance to impress in training.

The latest young player spotted in training is Will Fish, who has been a regular for the under-23s in 2022 since returning from a loan at Stockport County.

Fish joined Hannibal Mejbri, Alvaro Fernandez and Shola Shoretire with the first team group.

Alejandro Garnacho was not involved because he dropped down to play an under-18s game last night, with the academy squad stretched by the task of playing two matches with an 18 hour gap in between.

Your Club's SURPRISE Star This Season

Fish, 19, captained England’s under-19s last September in a win over Mexico and is highly rated by the club. He made his under-23s debut when he was just 16.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gave him his Manchester United debut on the final day of last season, when he was a last minute substitute in the 2-1 win over Wolves.

Fish has also played in the UEFA Youth League, and has recently played at Old Trafford for the under-23s in home matches against Chelsea and Arsenal, with United unbeaten in those games, and scored in a 2-2 draw away at Crystal Palace.

Once again Paul Pogba, Fred, Edinson Cavani and Luke Shaw were all absent, and are not expected to be involved against Chelsea on Thursday night.

Pogba and Fred’s absence could open the door for Hannibal to start, especially with Bruno Fernandes looking tired in recent games.
